COPE is about people working with people to build sustainable local economies that do not depend on charity, government or NGO’s. Unless local people can sustainably develop their own lives, it is not likely anyone else will do if for them. Look at what Zambians working with Zambians can accomplish.

COPE is action based on the key principles of the Earth Charter. To learn about the Earth Charter and how you can take action, Click Here
