dc.description.abstractToday’s meeting brings together representatives from a broad range of community, business, professional, indigenous, youth, religious and academic groups and associations. It marks an important step forward in this process of participation by Australian men and women in the development of the Earth Charter, a document which is envisaged as a truly inspirational statement of universal principles to guide individuals, communities and nations towards the protection and sustainable development of the environment. In this, of course, the Australian contribution is part of a much wider program of consultation with people and communities around the world, leading up to an Earth Charter Global Assembly next year – the year 2000 – and the adoption of the final draft of a People’s Earth Charter, As you know, the intention is to present the document to the United Nations – hopefully, by the year 2002.
