The Earth Guardian Principles and Agreements
We recognize that aligning in a shared vision as Earth Guardians Globally, it is essential to have principles that we all cultivate to maintain harmonious relationships, clear communication and common goals as we build this movement together. The following agreements were first established by our partners; Global Family, and used by groups throughout the world for the past several decades, to create strong cores globally. These principles give us the foundation for working together effectively and peacefully.

I agree to foster an environment of genuine collaboration, in which all people, including myself, feel empowered to express our individual and collective potential as Earth Guardians.
