To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Earth Charter, Ciudad Colón will be the site of another edition of the giant poem. Participants can put their words on a 150-meter roll. This had been done in at least 57 cities.
Organizers said they selected Ciudad Colón because that is the location of the Earth Charter International Secretariat. The event begins at 9 a.m. in the Ciudad Colón park.
The poem is called a social participatory project. The event also is linked to World Poetry Day.
The Earth Charter is described as an ethical framework for building a just, sustainable, and peaceful global society in the 21st century.
