Nature is more than a destination, more than a “place”. Nature is a mindset and a way of looking at the world. It is a teacher and a mentor. It is a set of values and principles on which one chooses to live accordingly, a framework for personal transformation.

 

Nature is about reciprocity, balance and humility. It is a world of wonders, discoveries and wisdom. Nature is Life – Life is Nature.

 

These values aim for our society to change its relationship with the natural world and view it in the same way we see Freedom and Democracy. Nature needs to be honored and respected. Instead of seeing it as a commodity that needs to be managed and saved.

 

This commitment seeks to fuel a movement that guides and helps people understand how nature and life positively impact our human spirit. It wants to create a resilient and humble society. It is a celebration of who we are as a human species and our capacity to achieve, learn, adapt, and spiritually grow. It is a movement that values and nurtures the journey of life, one that is not afraid of challenges and change. It is a movement that honors time and human relationships. It is a belief in the power of nature to Nurture, Awaken, Transform, Uplift, Restore & Elevate us. A power that ultimately makes us better people, guiding us towards our higher self.

 

These values set the tone and direction on how guardians of this world should move forward and into the future. This is not about measuring or quantifying Nature or Life, but about creating a framework for our growth and establishing a set of values that we prioritize culturally and individually.

 

The values are:

 

 

Humbleness NOT Righteousness

Better NOT Easier

Respect NOT Protect

Consciousness NOT Senseless

Reciprocity NOT Opportunistically

Community NOT Individuality

Slower NOT Faster

Local NOT Global

Accountability NOT Dishonesty

Long Term NOT Short Term

Forward NOT Backward

Optimism NOT Pessimism

Dynamic NOT Static

Evolution NOT Perfection

Resilient NOT Intransigent
