We acknowledge that human beings are part of the natural world and we respect the specific values of all forms of life.
We assert that the key to social justice is the equitable distribution of resources to ensure that all have full opportunities for personal and social development.
We strive for a democracy in which all citizens have the right to express their views, and are able to directly participate in the environmental, economic, social and political decisions which affect their lives; so that power and responsibility are concentrated in local and regional communities, and devolved only where essential to higher tiers of governance.
We declare our commitment to nonviolence and strive for a culture of peace and cooperation between states, inside societies and between individuals.
We recognize the limited scope for the material expansion of society within the biosphere, and the need to maintain biodiversity through the sustainable use of renewable resources.
Respect for Diversity
We honour cultural, linguistic, ethnic, sexual, religious and spiritual diversity within the context of individual responsibility toward all beings.
