As part of the 15th anniversary of the Earth Charter, we’re organizing a GIANT POEM in the city where the Earth Charter International Secretariat is located – CIUDAD COLON

 

 

When?  Saturday March 21 2015, 9:00am

On this day we’ll be celebrating World Poetry Day, declared by UNESCO in 1999.

The objectives of the Giant Poem are:

  • To promote dialogue and understanding between different      cultures
  • Generate a space for citizen participation through creative freedom
  • Develop in the society the principles that UNESCO promotes related to culture, education and sustainable development.
  • To encourage work from each person’s sensitivities
  • To foster the use of poetry as an accessible day to day tool for all
  • To create bridges between people and the arts outside conventional spaces
  • To promote reading and writing
  • To recognize the popular and spontaneous component of poetry, whose elements have been in human society for many centuries.
