Earth Charter Indiana

THE EARTH CHARTER is a declaration of fundamental ethical principles for building a just, sustainable and peaceful global society.

Earth Charter Indiana co-founders John Gibson and Jerry King have been friends and collaborators on Indianapolis neighborhood projects for nearly two decades. In 2001, they teamed up to convene a community assessment of the Earth Charter; an assessment which led to the formation of a new nonprofit organization that would promote the Charter’s integrated approach to sustainable community development.

As a team, Gibson and King brought years of grassroots organizing skills to the table. Jerry King was active in the Near East Side Community Organization and later elected chair of the Marion County Alliance of Neighborhoods Association. John Gibson was active in the Mapleton Fall Creek Neighborhood and in 1999 ran as an independent candidate for Mayor of Indianapolis.

Earth Charter Indiana exists to inspire and advance sustainable, just and peaceful living in Indiana by promoting the values and principles of the Earth Charter.
