St. Petersburg Times Profiles Earth Charter US's +10 Dinner

Earth Charter US’s +10 dinner at the Michael Murphy Gallery M was recently profiled in the St. Petersburg Times. In the article, Earth Charter US chairwoman Lorna Taylor explains the meaning behind the “10+10+10” theme of the gathering.

"Our 10th year and 10 companies are committing $10,000.'' She explained Earth Charter as ethical principles providing a framework for a just, sustainable and peaceful society based on global interdependence and universal responsibility.

The guest of honor was Steven C. Rockefeller, a professor and philanthropist who spearheaded the promotion of the Earth Charter.

HOK architect Yann Weymouth and DLA Piper lawyer Mike Bedke led toasts to Rockefeller, who drafted the Earth Charter presented at the Peace Palace in the Hague in 2000 and co-chairs the Earth Charter International Council. Deep discussion ensued among the heady mix of lawyers (Rhea Law, Ron Cristaldi), insurers (Guy King) and business leaders on living sustainably, locally, nationally and globally.

The Florida dinner was one of many that took place around the world to celebrate Earth Charter’s 10th anniversary.
