AMERICA IS THE CONTINENT THAT RECOGNIZES THE PLANET EARTH AS A LIVING BEINGSee Gallery
There are already 658 decrees, proclamations and manifestos from governmental organizations, indigenous peoples and the civil society from all over the Americas that adopt the Proclamation of the Constitution of the Rights of Mother Earth and support the creation of the Inter-American Environmental Charter
America is giving the most important global example of environmental protection, since, until November 2018, a total of 658 cities and governments from different countries of this continent recognize that Mother Earth or Planet Earth is a living being and that she has rights that must be recognized and respected to ensure present and future generations live in a healthy environment.
Since April 2018, this intense inter-American campaign began, so that, from the foundations of governmental entities, they begin to recognize Mother Earth or Planet Earth as a living being and assume political commitments to teach civil society these environmental principles.
Colombia continues to lead the countries of America in this work, with a figure of two hundred and ninety-two (292) decrees and proclamations of municipalities, governments, departmental assemblies, manifestos of indigenous peoples and the civil society. Mexico ranks second with one hundred and fifteen (115) documents, and Chile ranks third with sixty-four (64) documents. The following countries are followed by the number of documents: Paraguay (42), Venezuela (35), United States (23), Guatemala (18), Peru (17), Brazil (16), Ecuador (14), Panama (10), Puerto Rico (8), Honduras (7), El Salvador (1).
The leaders who have issued the decrees and proclamations have expressed their interest in the strategies needed to disseminate and train citizens in the adoption of the environmental proposals promoted by the Global Embassy of Activists by the Peace.
These official documents are accompanied by manifestos in support of the Proclamation of the Constitution of the Rights of Mother Earth or Planet Earth and the Inter-American Environmental Charter by other actors of the civil society, including: entrepreneurship, non-governmental organizations, professional associations, networks and organizations of indigenous peoples and nations, and institutions of higher education.
New decrees and proclamations are already being developed, which aspire to be finalized before the end of 2018, in order to support the Coalition led by the GEAP that presented the proposals of the Inter-American Environmental Charter and the Proclamation of the Constitution of the Rights of Mother Earth to the Organization of American States.
