Wangari Maathai
Universal Values
printer friendly version
We can work together for a better world with men and women
of goodwill, those who radiate the intrinsic goodness of humankind.
To do so effectively, the world needs a global ethic with values
which give meaning to life experiences and, more than religious
institutions and dogmas, sustain the non-material dimension of
humanity. Mankind's universal values of love, compassion, solidarity,
caring and tolerance should form the basis for this global ethic
which should permeate culture, politics, trade, religion and philosophy.
It should also permeate the extended family of the United Nations.

(Founder of the Green Belt Movement in Kenya -- 1977, and
winner of the Nobel Peace Prize -- 2004)
