What's important to you?
Making a difference
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?
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:
