There are 4 pillars in the Earth Charter that can help all people envision and communicate with ease the vision and interconnected ecosocial values we’ll need to advance a more just and thriving world: (I) Care and Respect for the Community of Life, (II) Ecological Integrity, (III) Social Justice and the last one is on (IV) Peace, Non-Violence and Democracy.

My teacher Prof Emeritus Sam Crowell on the amazing 5-month Education for Sustainable Development ESD course run by the UNESCO Chair of ESD, Earth Charter International, always liked sharing these wonderful international music videos to inspire us…

“Peace Train” – Yusuf / Cat Stevens’ timeless anthem of hope and unity – was originally released on the classic album ‘Teaser and the Firecat’ in 1971 and was Stevens’ first US Top 10 hit, reaching number 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. This Song Around The World version features more than 25 musicians from 12 countries and unites Yusuf / Cat Stevens, singing and playing a beautiful white piano in a tranquil open air setting in Istanbul, Turkey, with musicians such as five time Grammy Award winning blues/americana artist Keb’ Mo’; Grammy nominated Senegalese artist Baaba Maal; Silkroad’s Rhiannon Giddens—also a Grammy Award winner; Ghassan Birumi playing the oud in Ramallah, Palestine; musicians from the Silkroad Ensemble in Rhinebeck, New York; Pat Simmons (The Doobie Brothers) and James “Hutch” Hutchinson (bass player with Bonnie Raitt) performing in Maui, Hawaii; and bringing together conflict regions with Tushar Lall playing the harmonium in Delhi, India, and Joshua Amjad playing the Kartaal in Karachi, Pakistan.

And they remind me of the real delight it was in joining educators from around the world earlier this year who are so passionate about transformative learning for a better world.

Hello! Kia Ora! My name is Cathy Fitzgerald, and I’m an Irish-based New Zealander living in rural Ireland these past 20 years.

“In these urgent times, I’m passionate about bringing ecoliteracy including new ecological thinking, ethos, language and head-heart-body practices in an empowering transformative learning approach to the creative and wider cultural sector. Creative and cultural sector workers have a crucial leadership role if informed and supported. They can employ their social inclusivity skill and engaging creativity to inspire diverse communities to envision and embrace new understandings, values and actions for a more beautiful and just world.
