Earth Trustees

Shortly after the founding of Earth Day, John McConnell began working out his program for promoting Peace, Justice and Care of Earth. Working closely with secretaries-general U Thant and Kurt Waldheim from 1967 to 1972 and with many UN dignitaries up until the time of his passing, John envisioned a corpus of individuals and organizations which would work for the Earth and its many systems, all of which we rely upon for survival. Key to this was his work promoting Social Justice and the idea that one cannot have justice without understanding. To this end John began to work towards a stewardship model which included trusteeship of the ideas he promoted. This eventually became the Earth Trustee Registry. Since its early days and endorsement by John, The Authentic Earth Flag has worked closely with John, even up until shortly before his passing, to ensure that the Earth Trustee Registry survives and that the ideas that he promoted continue to live on.

Many heads of state, secretaries-general of the UN and other Earth Aware Stewards who are working towards a sustainable human presence on this planet have been enrolled as Earth Trustees. Counted among them are U Thant, Kurt Waldheim, Margaret Mead and recently, Al Gore. Even today the Earth Trustee pedigree remains powerful and its application could not be more appropriate than in today's global political climate. For this reason we have competely retooled the Earth Trustee Registry. Starting today, this new endeavor will be called the Earth Trustee Initiative.

Membership in the Earth Trustee Initiative will give you access to the Earth Trustee Newsletter, a quarterly issued electronic newsletter containing the latest news about the promotion of the Earth Trustee Agenda and its accomplishment. Other benefits will include access to resources that will allow you to get involved with partner organizations to join in on missions of Earth Trusteeship and Sustainability Stewardship all over the world. Finally we will send you a Certificate of Trusteeship acknowledging you as a member of the Earth Trustee Initiative. Many more benefits will follow this roll out so get involved now to automatically receive the latest updates and ways you can get more involved.  Click here to read the Earth Magna Charta and the Earth Trustee Agenda.
