The "Seeds of Change" Exhibition

Created in collaboration with the Earth Charter Initiative in support of the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (2005-14), the "Seeds of Change: The Earth Charter and Human Potential" exhibition was first shown during the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2002. The exhibition explores sustainable development and the transformative role that individuals can play by taking action at the local level, and it introduces the Earth Charter — a set of universal values and principles for a sustainable living. It has been translated into 13 languages and shown in 27 countries.

A Quiet Revolution: the Earth Charter and Human Potential, also created in support of the UN Decade, is a 30-minute film featuring three dramatic case studies of how individuals in India, Slovakia and Kenya have contributed to solving local environmental problems. Narrated by Academy Award-winning actress Meryl Streep and featuring interviews with UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and other experts, the film's primary message is that even one person's action can make a dramatic difference.
