Published: 21.07.2015

We vow to abstain from economic violence,[1] exploitation and oppression against others[2] (and ourselves); we vow to work towards a world where everyone has enough for their need but not for their greed;[3] we vow to work, in whatever our professional capacities, whether as lawyers,[4] judges, teachers, architects, civil servants, bankers, financial experts, in retail, management, business, agriculture, tourism, the arts, IT, communication, media, industry etc.[5] in a way that is without violence to our fellow man or to the environment and to nature or to the Divine Reality,[6] in a way in which our work is conducted with integrity and honesty,[7] and which serves the well being and happiness of society as a whole;[8] we vow to help use our professional careers as service vehicles for planetary enlightenment,[9] and to factor in the ethical side of our professional practice at all stages of our careers, so that we can see the contribution to peace that we are individually and collectively making.[10] We vow to help assist the development of a green economics[11] in which wealth is understood as the fruit of natural systems plus human ingenuity, to be shared peacefully and morally by us all.[12] We vow to abstain from all criminal economic activities which denigrate, destabilise and destroy human culture and happiness. [13] We vow to pay as a matter of principle those who work for us a decent salary, so that every citizen will get opportunity for self-development above mere minimal existence.[14]
