Walas and the Earth Charter

TheĀ Earth Charter is an ethical framework for the creation of a just, sustainable and peaceful global society. The Earth Charter calls for a change to sustainable life management and human development.

Many of us at Walas are involved in various ways on Earth Charter. Walas founder Gerben van Straaten has been the ambassador and supporter of Earth Charter since 2000. As a special ambassador for cities, Gerben is a speaker at events all over the world. Walas incorporates the values and principles of Earth Charter into all our companies and projects, and supports Earth Charter Cities Initiatives, Earth Charter Friends Canada and Earth Charter Cities.
