Today is “Earth Day“, a day designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s environment. I have run into the website of the Earth Charter Initiative – Nigeria. According to what is written there,
The Earth Charter is a declaration of fundamental ethical principles for building a just, sustainable and peaceful global society in the 21st century. It seeks to inspire in all people a new sense of global interdependence and shared responsibility for the well-being of the whole human family, the greater community of life, and future generations. It is a vision of hope and a call to action.
I haven’t heard about this initiative before and I hope it isn’t linked to some dubious organisation. The reason I am sharing a link to it here on Hausa Online is because it also has a Hausa version: Yaryejeniya ta Duniya:
Zataswa ce game da manyan manufofi na al’umma,domin gina al’umman duniya amintacciya, jurarriya cike kuma da zaman lafiya a karni na 21. Tana da burin wayar da kan dukkan mutane,tana da kyawawan tunani game da dogara da juna da duniya ke yi, da hakoki domin cimma cigaban iyalin duniya,na al’umma masu rai baki daya da kuma na tsararraki masu zuwa.sa zuciya ce kan burin da ke gaba, kira ce kuma domin aiki.
