On Monday Prince Charles has launched a groundbreaking new initiative called the Terra Carta.
Terra Carta, meaning Earth Charter in Latin, is a “recovery plan for Nature, People & Planet.” Released on Jan. 11, the document asserts that the “fundamental rights and values of nature” must be placed at the core of the global economy.
Prince Charles is expected to into more detail about how his actions and those of everyone else living on earth is affecting future generations and could result in promises being broken to future generations – and notably his grandchildren.
Charles has four grandchildren, three from his eldest son Prince William and one from Prince Harry.
They are Prince George and Prince Louis, born in 2013 and 2018 respectively, Princess Charlotte and Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.
Making his case for Terra Carta the prince is forecast to argue, “Sustainability is a choice. If we make it a part of our core values it will define our purpose, determine our choices and drive our actions.
“It is this which will determine whether or not our children and grandchildren look back on a series of broken promises or, instead, reflect on a tipping point at which the world shifted to a more sustainable, equitable and prosperous trajectory.”
Prince Charles has expressed his worries about George, Charlotte, Louis and Archie future many times.
Last June, he gave an emotional speech at virtual event hosted by HRH’s Sustainable Markets Initiative and The World Economic Forum.
Speaking about the balance between nature and humanity, Prince Charles shared a pledge to his grandchildren. “Everything I have tried to do, and urge, over the past 50 years has been done with our children and grandchildren in mind. So, I can only encourage us all to think big and act now.”
