The Earth Charter is a global declaration of fundamental values and principles for a sustainable future. It was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2000 and has since been endorsed by over 100 countries and organizations. The Earth Charter provides a comprehensive framework for education and the promotion of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The SDGs are a set of 17 goals adopted by the United Nations in 2015. They cover a wide range of issues, including poverty, hunger, health, education, gender equality, climate change, and peace. The Earth Charter and the SDGs are closely aligned, as both documents share a common vision of a sustainable and just future for all.
