"The Earth Charter, arising from and inspired by the interconnectedness of all elements of our existence, is an urgent and essential concept in these times—indispensable, in fact, if 'our land and life,' as the Hopi call it, is to survive. A Voice for Earth is a wonderful compilation of responses to the challenges the Charter represents and extremely valuable on that account."
—Peter Matthiessen, author of End of the Earth
"Readers will find here a wealth of insightful views on the ways in which the Earth Charter can re-enchant our imagination and re-engage our ethical and moral values. This timely book is a significant contribution to the creation of a more just, sustainable, and peaceful world."
“A collective call for a change of heart that will carry us forward.”
—Terry Tempest Williams, from her foreword
