With the then President of WCPA, Dr. Terence P. Amerasinghe of Sri Lanka:
“We were born for the Universe. We must not narrow our minds. We were born for humanity”
Dr. Terence Amerasinghe
The World Constitution and Parliament Association (WCPA) was founded in 1958 by Philip and Margaret Isely and others. They organized people worldwide to write the Constitution for the Federation of Earth. The Earth Constitution was written through a process of four Constituent Assemblies beginning in 1968 in Interlaken, Switzerland and ending in 1991 in Troia, Portugal. The assembly in Troia, Portugal, declared the Constitution finished and ready for ratification.
The WCPA today sponsors the Earth Constitution worldwide: its study, it translation into many languages, its dissemination, and its ratification. We have active WCPA chapters in a dozen countries and membership in some 100 countries. We also affiliate with many NGOs doing excellent work in areas of human rights, climate preservation, poverty alleviation, or peace promotion. We coordinate directly with the Earth Federation Institute (EFI), a tax-deductible organization in the USA, and together with EFI, we sponsor the World Parliament University on-line.
It is important to recognize that the Earth Constitution is not just another draft or ideal suggestion (for example, like the “Earth Charter” on-line). Nor is it a suggestion of sovereign nations to world together which is all the UN can do with its climate treaties and unenforceable “international laws.” The Earth Constitution is a blueprint for how we can govern our Spaceship Earth. It provides a brilliant set of global institutions through which we can establish world peace, world justice, world freedom, and planetary sustainability. Its promotion is the sum total of what WCPA is fundamentally about.
