Commitment to the Rights of Future Generations

I acknowledge these Principles that inform the Covenant between Future Generations and Present Generations. I acknowledge these Rights held by Future Generations, which I see as inalienable. I recognize these Responsibilities held by Present Generations. Beginning with myself, here and now, as a member of the Present Generation, I commit to:

Respecting myself and enlivening my days with wonder, gratitude, and humility;

Striving to establish respect and equality in my relationships with all other beings;

Holding an abiding sense of humility by acknowledging we are all members of interdependent communities, and by so doing, I commit to honoring and creating space for each and every community to speak on its own behalf, on behalf of its own Future Generations;

Working from the core values of respect, relationship, radical inclusion, and reciprocity;

Engaging my responsibilities as an opportunity, not a burden; as a way to expand my ability to respond and create positive change in the world, and as an opportunity to expand myself;

I commit to honor and uphold all relationships in the Earth community so that we may leave a healthy, humane and beautiful world to Future Generations.
