The Earthian Worldview

The Earthian Worldview represents a unified worldview for all Earthians. It functions as the moral and ethical foundation for humanity. Individuals can take personal actions using the Personal Action Planner for ideas.


As a supporter of the Earthian Manifesto, I agree to take action and strive for personal progress in the following “Earthian” attitudes and behaviors:

Respect for Man

  • Treat all human beings with respect and consideration. Treat others as we wish them to treat us.

Respect and Preserve Nature

  • Take responsibility for any impacts on nature and treat all creatures decently
  • Protect and restore Earth’s ecological systems and regenerative capabilities

 Help the Poor

  • Help eradicate poverty as an ethical, social and environmental imperative
  • Support universal access to education, healthcare and economic opportunity

Practice a Sustainable Lifestyle

  • Use all natural resources frugally and efficiently, particularly fossil fuels
  • Moderate material consumption: reduce, reuse and recycle

 Take Responsibility

  • The protection of human rights and those of the rest of nature is a worldwide responsibility that transcends all cultural, ideological and geographical boundaries. This responsibility is both individual and collective.

 

I support the following features of a global society:

  • Tolerance – Tolerance for diversity of race, color, nationality or religion
  • Care – Caring for the community of life, with understanding and compassion
  • Non-violence – Promote a global society of non-violence, tolerance and peace
  • Equality – Equal rights for everyone, including the right to life, liberty and security of person; to peaceful assembly and association; to participation in government; to education; to the freedoms of thought, conscience and religion; to inquiry and expression.
  • Participation – Inclusive participation in decision-making
  • Governance – Provide transparency and accountability in governance, and access to justice.
  • Development – Human development that does not threaten the integrity of nature or the survival of other species
  • Sustainability – Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs

 

Note: This Creed was developed from material in the Earth Charter from Earth Charter International (www.earthcharter.org).

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
