Our values

The work we do is based on our charter and the values we share as a movement and as a political party.

Collectively we aim to:

  • Act according to our Charter
  • Respect the planet and the web of life of which we are one part
  • Take the path of caution in the face of serious uncertainty about the consequences of human action
  • Think long term and holistically
  • Make decisions by consensus whenever possible
  • Engage respectfully, without personal attacks
  • Support ideas on their merit, regardless of where they originate
  • Actively respect cultural and individual diversity and celebrate difference
  • Maintain a community focus
  • Enable participation with dignity and challenge oppression
  • Encourage new voices and cherish wisdom
  • Recognise our duty of care towards those who cannot speak for themselves
  • Foster compassion, a sense of humour and mutual enjoyment in our work
