Values are the things that are important to us.

Values are what make us who we are. They are the compass guiding everything we do – our choices and our actions. When we forget that compass, we take the wrong turn. It’s the same for our families, for our communities, for the world.

Bringing communities together.  Our values show us the way.

World Values Day is 18 October 2018

World Values Day is an opportunity to think about our most deeply held values and to act on them. Staying true to our values and acting on them has never been more important. This year’s core theme is about putting our values into action in our communities.

Values are the things that are important to us, the foundation of our lives. They are deeply held principles that guide our choices and behaviours and influence our emotions. Values are the core of who we are. They are our motivators, our drivers, the passion in our hearts and the reason why we do the things we do.  What will you do in your community this World Values Day?

Get Involved

It’s easy! Whether we are individuals, families, groups, schools or other organisations, we can all put a key value into action in our community. Whatever you do, however big or small, can make a difference in your own community and so help change the world! Just take these simple steps:

Choose a Community

It might be where you live, study or work.  Or a community based on faith, sport or other common interest. Or it could be a virtual community.

l

Choose a Value

Identify a value that you feel is really important for that community.

For help on this and more about values see our Values Guides for

Organisations

Community Groups

Schools

Take an Action

Put that value into action in a way that makes a positive impact on the community. Keep it as simple and practical as you can. Involve others as much as possible.
