The Commonwealth Affirmations underlie the intrinsic values that the entire Commonwealth shares:
We affirm that every person possesses unique worth and dignity.
We affirm our respect for nature, and that we will be stewards of the earth by caring for every part of it, and for it as a whole.
We affirm our belief in justice for everyone, and peace between peoples and nations.
Joining together in kinship and affinity as members of one worldwide Commonwealth family, we celebrate this great global good, the value it adds for all humanity, and the encouragement we each receive as members of ‘An Inclusive Commonwealth’.
We cherish the spirit of teamwork that inspires us, and the ties of friendship that enable us to work with one another towards creating just and peaceful societies, achieving sustainable and inclusive social progress, advancing democracy, and building economic resilience with prosperity in which all citizens can share.
