Self declaration – Projekt Weltethos
I hereby declare

Common values are essential for peaceful coexistence. These basic humanistic values already exist – they can be found across all cultures, religions and philosophies. One of them is the Golden Rule, according to which one should behave towards one’s fellow human beings in the way one would like to be treated. Another one is the Humanity Principle, i.e. the demand that all people should be treated humanely. 

 Hans Küng summarized these and other universal values under the term Weltethos. They are considered to support the central value of human dignity as well as the human rights, but they must be made conscious, lived and passed on. Great changes begin with me – that’s why I want to do my part for a better world and fill the values with life.

– Nonviolence
I hereby declare my commitment to solve conflicts without violence. Respect for life and peaceableness characterize my actions. 

– Justice
I hereby commit myself to strive for justice in my actions and not to accept injustice. My actions should be fair and in solidarity. 

– Truthfulness
I hereby declare my commitment to truthful action and the pursuit of truth. Against disinformation and lies I stand up for sincerity and integrity. 

– Equality
I hereby declare my commitment to respect people regardless of gender, skin color, age, origin or religion. To me, equality means partnership with those who are different from me. 


With my signature and my actions according to Global Ethic values, I contribute in my place to a good life. 

 

YES!

I WANT TO SET A SIGN

Yes, I want to stand up for a better world and commit myself to the five global ethic values.

SPREAD THE IDEA

YOU THINK GLOBAL VALUES MAKE SENSE?

We humans have one thing in common: we are different. But far too often exactly these differences are used to separate, degrade and divide. 

You are not participating in this? Fine, neither do we! 

Add a picture to your statement against division.

AND SET A VALUABLE MARK

ECOLOGICAL RESPONSIBILITY

YOUR SIGN FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

Ecological responsibility was added in 2018 as the 5th and last common value in the Global Ethic Project. Fortunately, ’cause without a vital earth, all human efforts are in vain. 

 Set your mark for ecological responsibility in November 2020. Think of a small activity on the topic and carry it out. You can get first suggestions here: 

 What could I do alone, for example? 

 Find out how you can make your contribution on a small scale. Use energy consciously, avoid plastic waste, change your eating habits for this month or support a concrete environmental protection activity in your area. The possibilities of engagement are manifold, it is important to address them. 

 For example, what could we do in our company or organization? 

 Reusable glass bottles in the tea kitchen, finally using green electricity or feeding the printer with recycled paper. The first steps for companies can be quite simple and have probably been discussed many times before. 

 As employees, you can carpool or travel to work by bicycle or public transport for a month. Small things can also take place in large companies and bring environmental responsibility to life.  

 Whether in a group or alone – we are looking forward to your activity in November. 

If you or you want to, tell us about your project on ecological responsibility by email to info@projektweltethos.de or share a post of your activity with the hashtag #SignAgainstDivision or – and it will land directly on our Social Wall. 

NONVIOLENCE

YOUR SIGN AGAINST VIOLENCE

Non-violence in word and deed is the basis for dialogue. And only through dialogue can we find solutions in our world that are acceptable to all of us. 

 Set an example of non-violence in November 2020. Think about a small activity on the topic of truthfulness and carry it out. You can get first suggestions here: 

 What could I do alone, for example? 

 Live consciously non-violent in November – in word and deed. Question your culture of discussion at the point where it’s no longer about convincing or getting things moving, but about hurting others – whether in real conversation or on the net. 

 What could we do in our company or organization, for example? 

 Physical non-violence is of course the prerequisite for any action in organizations and companies. But violence has many facets and is perceived differently from person to person. Conduct conversations or a survey in your institution to get an idea of where the feeling of violence sets in for each individual in your group. 

 Whether in a group or alone – we are looking forward to your activity in November. 

If you want, you can email us at info@projektweltethos.de about your project on non-violence or share a post of your activity with the hashtag #SignAgainstDivision or – and it will land directly on our Weltethos Social Wall. 

JUSTICE

YOUR SIGN AGAINST INJUSTICE

Justice is more than just obeying laws. Question yourself whether your actions are fair to future generations, other social classes or other parts of the world. 

 Set an example for justice in November 2020. Think about a small activity on the topic of truthfulness and carry it out. You can get first suggestions here: 

 What could I do alone, for example? 

 Ask yourself: How just are your actions towards others? And what can you do to promote justice in the world and in other social groups? 

 Get involved as a supporter of organizations that demand justice and human rights worldwide. Show the flag when injustice is happening in your environment. Or remember a situation in your life in which you did not act justly towards a fellow human being. Just send the person an apology today. Your consumer behavior can also be just. Avoid products that were produced under unfair and unjust conditions. 

 What could we do in our company or organization, for example? 

 To live justice in an organization begins already outside your own organization. Namely at the point where your own company uses the services and products of others. Clarifies whether these were created under unfair conditions and looks for alternatives that were produced fairly. Come into the discussion and discuss in your organization what justice means for your daily practice. As a company you can also show your attitude towards justice by supporting organizations that demand human rights. 

 Whether in a group or alone – we are looking forward to your activity in November. 

If you want, you can send us an email to info@projektweltethos.de about your concrete project on justice or share a post of your activity with the hashtag #SignAgainstDivision – and it will land directly on our Social Wall.

TRUTHFULNESS

YOUR SIGN FOR TRUTHFULNESS

Truthfulness is the basis for a trust – in personal relationships and in society.  

 Set an example of truthfulness in November 2020. Think about a small activity on the topic of truthfulness and carry it out. You can get first suggestions here: 

 What could I do alone, for example? 

Discussions on the net and in real life are getting faster and faster. Unchecked, fake news and assertions are used as arguments from all sides and on all topics. Start by checking whether statements that you or others use unfiltered are supported by other sources outside your environment. 

 On one day in November 2020, count how many messages you have really dealt with and can deal with. Read as an experiment on a weekend five differently weighted media on a subject. Or support an organization that promotes freedom of opinion and free press work worldwide to enable a true picture in reporting. 

 What could we do, for example, in our company or organization? 

 For companies and organizations, truthfulness is the basis for sustainable and successful development. Only when goals and motives are communicated transparently can trust be built among employees, customers and partners. Why don’t you do the test and ask after a set day how truthful and sincere the working day in the organization felt for each individual? 

 Whether in a group or alone – we are looking forward to your activity in November. 

If you or you want to, tell us about your project on truthfulness by email to info@projektweltethos.de or share a post of your activity with the hashtag #SignAgainstDivision – and it will land directly on our Social Wall. 
 

EQUALITY & PARTNERSHIP

EQUALITY & PARTNERSHIP

Equal rights and partnership guarantee that we meet in solidarity on an equal footing and prevent discrimination. And only then will we be able to live diversity and take advantage of global opportunities for all, for all. 

 IN NOVEMBER 2020, SET AN EXAMPLE OF EQUAL RIGHTS AND PARTNERSHIP. THINK ABOUT A SMALL ACTIVITY ON THE TOPIC AND CARRY IT OUT IN NOVEMBER. YOU CAN GET FIRST SUGGESTIONS HERE: 

What could I do alone, for example? 

 equality and partnership can only be lived if you put yourself in the shoes of the other person. Something normally perceived suddenly becomes an obstacle course – like the path of a wheelchair user who encounters a defective lift in the subway. 

 Change your perspective for a day and put yourself in the concrete situation of another person you know. Perceive how your world would change and which chances or problems would result. 

 What could we do in our company or organization, for example? 

 Equal rights and diversity knows many topics. Gender, skin color, religion and physical handicaps are just a few. Collect and discuss topics in your organization that should be considered from an equal opportunities perspective for each of you (e.g. age, language, etc.) and how they affect you. Or, quite simply, create a cookbook of different tastes in your company, in which each employee’s favorite recipe can be found. 

 Whether in a group or alone – we are looking forward to your activity in November. 

If you like, you can tell us about your equal rights project by e-mail to info@projektweltethos.de or share a post of your activity with the hashtag #SignAgainstDivision – and it will land directly on our Social Wall.
