Our Vision and Values

We want a society where:

  • the basic needs of all - for food, clothing, a home, love, dignity and respect - are met
  • there is equal opportunities for all to develop their talents and abilities to the full - enriching society and themselves
  • all are free from oppression, injustice, discrimination and exploitation - particularly if based on gender, race, disability, age, sexuality, ethnic or national origins, religion or belief
  • positive action is taken to reverse historic inequalities
  • children are nurtured, nourished and respected
  • older people are valued and cared for
  • people of different cultures, religions, ethnicities, "races" or background are valued and respected as human beings. Differences are a source of unity and celebration - not conflict and hatred
  • there is respect for democracy and democratic institutions - opposition to all forms of corruption - the highest standards of behaviour and leadership in public life
  • no one has the right to impose their values or life-style on others in a way that breaches their fundamental human rights
  • our world is developed sustainably and we all take full responsibility - individually and collectively - to ensure we leave the world and its environment secure for future generations
  • we contribute to a new global community of co-operation, interdependence
  • we eliminate poverty, famine, debt, militarism and war
