For the Emerging Issue assignment, go to the internet for The Earth
and read about this new global initiative. Then write a quality and reflective paper of
about 3-5 or more pages, in an attempt to address and “discuss The Earth Charter’s 16
principles, challenges, vision and explain what is meant by “the Way Forward.” Students
are to cite their sources, because “any sign of plagiarism will result in a final “F” grade.
This includes copying, paraphrasing someone, borrowing or stealing materials from the
internet or any other sources without proper notations and/or accurate citations.”
