Having worked on the drafting of The EARTH CHARTER in the 1990's, I appreciate how imperative it is that we continue, as one human family, to establish and expand global agreements and commitments for the future of humanity. Not as some "global government" but rather as a sober recognition that with seven billion plus people on our fragile beautiful planet we need deep levels of cooperation, understanding and support among all cultures and communities. More true now in 2018 than when I first said it before the Earth Summit in 1992..."It is time TO 'MOTHER' EARTH"!
