The Ten Commitments of Living Humanist Values

These are the values which form the basis of these activities

Altruism

I will help others in need without hoping for rewards.

Critical Thinking

I will practice good judgement by asking questions and thinking for myself.

Empathy

I will consider other people’s thoughts, feelings and experiences.

Environmentalism

I will take care of the Earth and the life on it.

Ethics

I will always focus on becoming a better person.

Global Awareness

I will be a good neighbour to the people who share the Earth with me and help make the world a better place for everyone.

Humility

I will be aware of my strengths and weaknesses, and appreciate the strengths and weaknesses of others.

Peace and Social Justice

I will help people solve problems and handle disagreements in ways that are fair for everyone.

Responsibility

I will be a good person – even when no one is looking – and act responsibly at all times.

Service and Participation

I will help my community and play my part in making things better for everyone.


The Humanist view of life is progressive and optimistic, in awe of human potential, living without fear of judgement and death, finding enough purpose and meaning in life, love and leaving a good legacy.
