Unite as one planet or perish. This is the choice humanity faces as we witness unprecedented crises: ecosystem collapse, wildlife extinction, global pandemics, terrorism, endless war, and economic inequality. Creativity can overcome crises, but what will it take to transform our world into one where peace, justice, and sustainability are planetary principles?

With a comprehensive design for our living planet, The Earth Constitution Solution confronts our perilous future head-on. It shows the absurdity of the nation-state system, which gives Brazil the “right” to destroy the Amazon Forest – the lungs of Earth. It exposes the fundamental flaws and corruption of the New World Order and Great Reset proposed by the World Economic Forum – fractured globalization plans that would divide us and exploit our precious planet. And it reveals why the Earth Federation Movement is growing, as people realize that global problems can only be solved as a united planet.

The Earth Constitution is a unifying document with a practical plan for federating Earth that can be studied and implemented by world citizens. The Earth Constitution saves what works at the United Nations and integrates it into a framework that replaces our fragmented system with a holistic design founded on global democracy. The result is a realistic and inclusive roadmap that charts a glorious future for our living planet.


“The achievement of the Earth Constitution Solution would mark a milestone in humankind’s evolution into a true planetary species.”

⸺ Ervin Laszlo, Founder Club of Rome, Club of Budapest, the Laszlo Institute of New Paradigm Research,, and author of more than 100 books.

The Earth Constitution Solution is a guide for current and future action, and Glen Martin outlines the world structures needed to ensure the rights and common good of all humanity. This book is a vital presentation of the avenues to transcend the current geopolitical, conflictual structures toward a world society in which individuals can develop their full potential.”

~   Rene Wadlow, President of the Association of World Citizens and Professor Emeritus at Graduate Institute of Development Studies in Geneva, Switzerland

“Martin’s Design for a Living Planet is an amazing piece of work – an irrefutable argument for an Earth Constitution that should be compulsory reading for all the presidents and prime ministers of the world – preferably as a preparation for a new international convention on a world constitution to replace the obsolete U.N. Charter. Such a convention should be held before the world’s injustices, inequalities, nationalisms, religions and climate change all combine to create the conditions that trigger the next world war.”

~   Ian Hackett, Co-Founder of the World Federalist Party, former Chair of the UK Association of World Federalists, Director of the One World Trust, and Head of the International School of London

“The concept of a world organization to ensure peace and welfare is an ancient one. The Upanishads speak of the human race as a family and see a spark of divinity in every human being … [yet] nationalism turns out to be a much more powerful and potent emotion than universalism. … Martin has written a book entitled Earth Constitution Solution in which he has outlined a concrete proposal for achieving this great ideal. My good wishes are with Martin and other friends who are committed to an idea whose time is bound to come sooner or later.”

~   D. Karan Singh Ji, Associate of the World Constitution and Parliament Association, former Cabinet Member and longest serving Representative in the Raj Sabba (Upper House of the Parliament of India)

“Design for a Living Planet is an essential guidebook for everyone seeking to transcend tribalism and unite humanity through democratic world federation. The world administration advocated by this book and the Earth Constitution is the most complete depiction of what united humanity could look like.”

~   Eston McKeague, President of the Young World Federalists

“Design for a Living Planet has arrived just when our world needs it the most. Every page of this extremely informative, profound and illuminating book offers us seminal wisdom that will guide our generation into a new Age of Holism. Ratifying the Earth Constitution will help lead the way into this magnificent new era for our beloved Planet Earth, all beings in our vast ecosystem and future generations that deserve a beautiful, thriving, and life-affirming home.”

~   Diane Williams, Founder of The Source of Synergy Foundation and the U.N. NGO Committee on Spirituality, Values, and Global Concerns (NY), and co-author of Our Moment of Choice

“Earth is a living planet. At the current rate of destruction, we will soon minimize the life cycle of Earth and its people. Hence, Design for a Living Planet can be taken as a hub for the wheel of holistic life. The Earth Constitution has been mooted by Dr. Martin; it is now for us to implement it without any apprehension, whatsoever. Moreover, the War Pentagon should mandatorily be replaced with the Peace Pentagon.”

~   Colonel Tejendra Pal Tyagi, Veer Chakra, Executive President of the World Constitution and Parliament Association in India, and National President of Rashtriya Sainik Sanstha in India (National Vanguard of     ex-servicemen and patriotic citizens)

The Earth Constitution Solution has the potential to become a classic, as it proclaims the ‘Big Idea’ using academic theory and practice at the highest level of excellence and thoroughness. In arguing for the Earth Constitution, Professor Martin’s logic rivals the famous Federalist Papers, drafted to gain support for the U.S. Constitution. There’s plenty here for intellectuals, the average citizen, save-the-world activists, and politicians from around the world.”

~   Roger Kotila, Ph.D., President of the Democratic World Federalists, Board Member at the Center for U.N. Constitutional Research (CUNCR Brussels), and Editor of Earth Federation News & Views

“La Constitución para la Federación de la Tierra es un instrumento concreto para acercarse a una utopía alcanzable, y Design for a Living Planet es una guía necesaria para cualquiera que crea que hay un hermoso futuro para la humanidad. Para aquellos apasionados por la paz mundial, la justicia, la equidad planetaria y la sostenibilidad ambiental, el Dr. Martin presenta una solución holística en un lenguaje accesible para todos.”

~   Leopoldo A. Cook, Board Member of the Earth Constitution Institute and Vice President of the World Constitution and Parliament Association in Latin America and the Caribbean

“Many great thinkers throughout history have argued that only a democratically elected global government – complete with a Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the other structures necessary to make it effective – can solve humanity’s most pressing problems and ensure global peace and prosperity.  Glen T. Martin is a superb spokesperson for these ideas, and their philosophical, scientific and moral foundation.”

~   Bob Flax, Ph.D., Executive Director of Citizens for Global Solutions

     and professor of Transformative Social Change at Saybrook University    

“Dr. Martin conveys a great message: If thinkers, philosophers, and activists work with sincerity, honesty, commitment, and LOVE for all humanity, a new human civilization is possible. The Earth Constitution should be studied by universities around the world so that coming generations will be empowered to build a cooperative economy and justice-centered, global political system.”

~   E. P. Menon, Board Member of the Earth Constitution Institute, global peace activist, and author of Foot Prints on Friendly Roads, which chronicles his 8,000 mile “peace walk” around the world

“Glen Martin delivers practical, intelligent, and comprehensive arguments for the adoption of the Earth Constitution. HisDesign for a Living Planet deserves to be number one on the reading list of anyone concerned with the freedom and well-being of humanity.”

~   Eugenia Almand, Secretary General of the World Constitution and Parliament Association

“Carl Jung said the way to wholeness is comprised of inevitable detours and even wrong turnings but a snake-like path that ultimately unites opposites. I think the journey to an Earth Constitution will be much the same. Let the conversation begin!”

~   Kurt Johnson, Ph.D., Founder of the Interspiritual Network, co-host of The Convergence series on Voice America, and author of Fine Lines,   The Coming Interspiritual Age, and Our Moment of Choice

“Glen Martin’s The Earth Constitution Solution: Design for a Living Planet is a hopeful vision that is a deeply inspiring, precise roadmap for a better future. This new work by Martin is an excellent must-read for anyone who cares about the future of our planet.”

~    H.E. Rev. Patrick McCollum, World peace and planetary sustainability activist and Founder of the McCollum Foundation for Peace 

“Martin’s Design for a Living Planet is a compendium of the most advanced thinking concerning sustainable economics, ecological sanity, a holistic world-view, and ‘planetary consciousness.’ As human beings we must become humane beings, motivated by compassion and imagination as well as by reason. … [T]he legal and humane wisdom of the Earth Constitution can lead us to a world without war, where cultures can flourish and nations continue, but in which sovereignty is exchanged for a transnational security that preserves the peace, prosperity, and environmental health of all life-forms on Earth.”

~   Richard D. Sharp, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus in Literature at

     Catholic University and Fulbright Fellow to India

“The Earth Constitution – like the Magna Carta, the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights – provides a framework for peaceful and just human interaction. Transcending those historic legal documents, the Earth Constitution explains how we, as world citizens, can sustainably interact with Earth and begin to govern our world as one human family. In his latest book, Dr. Martin presents clear and compelling arguments for humanity to immediately engage this paradigm shift in law and politics.

~   David Gallup, Esq., President of World Service Authority and Convener of the World Court of Human Rights Coalition
