This association offers an original revision draft emphasizing the environment. In addition to the three principles in the current constitution (1. popular sovereignty, 2. fundamental human rights, 3. pacifism), a fourth principle—protection of the environment—should be added. It states that a new chapter devoted to the environment would be a vital part of the new constitution because the world economy is changing rapidly and because environmental problems are becoming a serious threat to humankind. It asserts that environmental restrictions are as essential as Article 9, and that this new chapter will be important for clarifying the concept of "public welfare." The association also suggests making changes to the Preamble to include the environment.
