The Declaration of a Global Ethic

Parliament of World Religions 1993

The world is in agony. The agony is so pervasive and urgent that we are compelled to name its manifestations so that the depth of this pain may be made clear.

Peace eludes us...the planet is being destroyed...neighbors live in fear...women and men are estranged from each other...children die!

This is abhorrent!

But this agony need not be.

We Declare:

Therefore, we commit ourselves to this global ethic, to understanding one another, and to socially-beneficial, peace-fostering, and nature-friendly ways of life.

We invite all people, whether religious or not, to do the same.
