"In order to change an existing paradigm you do not struggle to try and change
the problematic model. You create a new model and make the old one obsolete.

That, in essence, is the higher service to which we are all being called."

—  R. Buckminster Fuller 

Codes for a Healthy Earth is offered as a unifying, whole-system healing framework that is open to ongoing evolution and refinement. The vision for "the Codes” was inspired by the work of the Global White Lion Protection Trust. The document was initially drafted by Shelley Ostroff and Yan Golding from Together in Creation, and has evolved through a consultative and collaborative process with a growing global network of partners from over 30 countries on all continents. The framework can be freely adopted – in its integrity – by any group or movement as a collective compass for coordinated community-led action towards the healing and regeneration of the planet and all its inhabitants.  

Codes for a Healthy Earth is inspired by and builds on numerous pioneering declarations, charters, manifestos and guiding principles including The Earth Charter, The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, The Universal Declaration of the Rights of Mother Nature, The Universal Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and others (see evolving list below). Together, these documents offer a wealth of wisdom, shared values and aspirations, principles, policies and solutions that could—if implemented—ensure the health and vitality of the planet and all its inhabitants for generations to come. 


Codes for a Healthy Earth launched globally on International Peace Day, September 21st, 2019. The “Codes” are founded on the premise that as long as there is oppression anywhere within the Community of Life, true peace cannot exist. To achieve genuine and lasting World Peace, it is essential that we cultivate Peace with All of Life.

To support the implementation of Codes for a Healthy Earth, the Eco-Governance framework and an evolving Eco-Governance Community platform is now available to support effective community-led self-organization.


With immense gratitude to all those who support and contribute to the evolution of Codes for a Healthy Earth in so many different ways!
