A Voice for Earth is a collection of poems, essays,
and stories that together give a voice to the ethical principles
outlined in the Earth Charter. The Earth Charter was adopted in the
year 2000 with the mission of addressing the economic, social,
political, spiritual, and environmental problems confronting the
world in the twenty-first century.
Part 1 of the book, "Imagination into Principle," comprises
Steven C. Rockefeller's behind-the-scenes summary of how the
language for the Earth Charter was drafted. In part 2, "Principle
into Imagination," ten writers breathe life into its concepts with
their own original work. Contributors include Rick Bass, Alison
Hawthorne Deming, John Lane, Robert Michael Pyle, Janisse Ray,
Scott Russell Sanders, Lauret Savoy, and Mary Evelyn Tucker. In
part 3, "Imagination and Principle into a New Ethic," Leonardo Boff
offers a new paradigm created through reflecting on the concept of
care in the Earth Charter.
