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.

Our values show us the way.

World Values Day is 19 October 2017

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.

World Values Day is an opportunity for us to think about our most deeply held values and to act on them. This year we are paying special attention to the values of groups and organisations, and how by truly putting those values into action we can help to change the world.
