In these principles we assert the interdependence of all life. We oppose any destructive processes which are destroying our planet. History has shown us that the irresponsible usage of our planet’s resources causes the collapse of basic environmental systems and societies and creates a threat to the very continuation of life on the planet.

Enough Is enough and enough is plenty.

” We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children. “

Economy driven by short-term profits for the benefit of a few people has to be replaced by an economy which works in a sustainable network for the common good of all life. We cannot accept that a third of the world’s human population is starving while 2% own more than half of global household assets. We favour trade where everyone has a fair share in a society guided by self-reliance and co-operation at all levels. Conservation of resources is vital to a sustainable society. To this aim we support the macro-economic policy goal of a steady state economy that features sustainable scale, fair distribution of wealth, and efficient allocation of resources. The impact of society on the environment should not be ecologically disruptive.

” Only when the last tree has died, the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize that we cannot eat money. “

We believe in the equality of every human, no matter what age, ancestry, gender, belief, sexual orientation or disability. We condemn war, violence, militarism, racism and fascism. The need for world peace and justice overrides national and commercial interests.

We want all political, social and economic decisions taken at the lowest effective level, reflecting the decisions reached at the Rio Conference in 1992, ‘Local Agenda 21′. Decisions should as far as possible be on the basis of consensus and respect for the rights of minorities.
