TOWARDS A GLOBAL ETHIC: the five directives

The Global Ethic developed by the Parliament of World Religions is uniquely special for its articulation of shared moral principles found broadly across both historic and new religious and spiritual traditions. And it is profound in its simplicity.

Representatives of all the world’s religions agreed that there are common ethical commitments foundational to each of their traditions:

  • Human beings should be treated humanely
  • The Golden Rule of reciprocity
  • A commitment to peace and justice
  • A commitment to a Culture of Sustainability and Care for the Earth
