FRIENDS OF THE EARTH


FRIENDS OF THE EARTH

              Lyrics

We’re not owners of the air
Neither the seas
In a short time
We have neglected

The animals are our brothers
Know how respect her
Why don’t we do it?
It’s easy why don’t we try?

Friends of the earth
Friends of the life
Listen to her chant
Friends of the earth
Friends of the wild

Listen to her lament


CHORUS


Friends of the earth
Our dear mother is damaged
Oceans are in danger
Promise you will take care of her
Listen to the voice
Complaining in the silence
Her sorrow in the rain
Promise you will take care of her

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 
The blue planet is delicate
We are their children
It’s a big treasure
Our sons also need a nice home

Friends of the earth
Friends of the life
Listen to her chant
Friends of the earth
Friends of the wild

Listen to her lament


CHORUS

MUSIC ALONE
CHORUS (ONE TONE HIGH)
FINAL:


Friends of the earth
Friends of the earth
Friends of the earth

Environmentaleducation that promotes civic and humanistic values allows people to realizethat we are all part of the same environment and have the same biological valueto the same extent, regardless of religion, race or sex. Therefore, because allhuman beings are a part and parcel of nature, this project promotes that afriendly and respectful relationship with the environment should mean respectto the different lifestyles that define the individual as a social human being.Therefore, respect of European cultural diversity and respect for freedom ofthought and understanding of Europe as a democratic, pluralistic society.Furthermore, since the European Union has common policies regarding theprotection of the environment, in order to reach a common consensus on how torepair the environmental problems that affect nature, we need to reach anEuropean intercultural approach. Thus, to understand how other Europeancountries feel towards environmental problems and enjoy a greater cooperation.

 

Therefore,multiculturalism is an added value towards stronger European cooperation, whichwill be a cornerstone of this project and common cultural ground.Interculturalism is a humanistic value that everyone should experience duringtheir education as it develops universal values such as justice, tolerance andsolidarity by accepting our own culture and the knowledge and acceptance ofothers. Thus, through this project we all will develop a greater sensitivity tothe less visible aspects of European cultures, their own idiosyncrasies, andconsequently, toward empathy and acceptance of other people. This empathy isessential to feel included within other cultures and to get everyone to acommon cultural ground. In addition to that, all project participants willcommunicate with each other using a language other than their mother tongue,English, which already implies a common cultural denominator. In conclusion, weconsider nature as a universal good whose problems must be addressed from anEuropean intercultural ground that includes various forms of thinking andbeing. Therefore, to be able to understand those common European policies withregard to environmental issues and decisions made to solve them.
