The pledge points are re-envisioning of the principles from the 2015 Ecostage Pledge, which in turn was inspired in part by the Millennium Declaration. The new pledge points also come from our own practices, permaculture, ecoscenography and the work of many academics and practitioners. They are also influenced by the urgency and intersectionality of our times. We spent a year interrogating the various topics covered in order to create a usable set of principles that can be applied to projects. The pledge points and Guide have also been peer reviewed by a wide range of practitioners and thinkers.
