the guiding texts

        of modern eco-humanism


The Guiding Texts of modern eco-humanism are essential written documents, initially published by the Gaia Mater OING (representing the eco-humanist community at the UN in permanent consultative status since 2006) in their latest updated edition (2012), and  put in the public domain. They can continue to be corrected and updated by conventions of revision, organized by the HCEHC (1) .

They consist in agregative documents, presented by ascending and priority order :

① The Fundamental Charter of the Protective Societal Principles, accompanied with                 (Both forming the core

       the Complementary Charter of Protection of the Environment and of the Quality of Life.    of the principial corpus.)

② The Practical Reminder of the Eco-humanist, complemented by a modelled frame of learning.

③ The Introductory Syntesis of Eco-humanism.

These texts are complementary each other, but each one sufficient to expose the essentials of eco-humanism.

Regarding the Charters, they can be published and posted separately, but they remain inserted into the Reminder and into the Introductory Synthesis.

These Charters formalize superior criteria of orientation and appreciation of human acts, as well as a framework of societal cohesion, and major civic objectives. They constitute a conceptual and practical basis which guides and which makes more cohesive the eco-humanist community. Their last wording ensues from the works of the conventions of coordination of 1998 and 1999 of the Gaia Mater's network of NGOs.

The Reminder expresses in diverse short complementary presentations the deep spirit, the trajectory, the motivations, and the common values, of eco-humanism. This Reminder consists of a selection of the favorite and most used texts of the  majority of eco-humanist animators-volunteers in their activities. It is complemented by didactical models.

The Introductory Synthesis of the "Speeches on eco-humanism and on the philosophy of evolution" is a selection of support-texts of several colloquiums, conferences, and trainings of animators, compiled and reorganized in 1998. This introductory synthesis became since then the main training medium of eco-humanist animators-volunteers.

All these texts is integrated in a specific educational corpus which is used at first to educate the eco-humanist volunteers, but which is gladly shared also with any other interested person or structure. This corpus includes studies and didactic collections (e.g. Eco-knowledges) which deepen knowledge bases.


(1) A common body in independent functioning, the High Council of Eco-Humanist Cohesion (of which the administrators are chosen by drawn lots and renewed among the main eco-humanist animators and creators of structures fom different countries), expresses opinions, arbitrations, and recommendations about the eco-humanist practices and references. It performs also the exceptional revision of the guiding texts, and their translation into the main usual languages.
