OUR CORE VALUES
Education – Understanding the Big Picture
Lifelong education must instill the values, skills and commitment to work together to respond to the challenges ahead, to address complex issues, such as climate, biodiversity, conflict and poverty. It is essential that we understand the systemic causes of these issues as well as the consequences of our actions. Investment in education is vital.
Our leaders must be chosen for their honesty, integrity and their knowledge, skills and commitment to be catalysts for positive change.
We share our expertise and educational materials with others for the benefit of humanity and the environment and encourage others to do the same.
Respect for Others
Our values determine our behaviour which impacts the world around us. Our behaviour affects other people, other species and future generations. Taking responsibility for the consequences of our actions is central to achieving a peaceful, just and sustainable world.
Working in Partnership and International Cooperation
We are committed to working in partnership with people of goodwill from around the world to increase international respect and cooperation and reduce conflict around environment and development issues.
