Developing comprehensive values

Identifying universal values
Values are the foundation of commitment and determine an individual's or collective's world view. They give direction, purpose and meaning to life. The destiny of both individuals and society is shaped and created with the values by which they live. Values chosen, or adopted by inheritance, assign worth or importance to those aspects of life to which they relate. There may be instances where a value choice is a matter of personal opinion, but a number of values are fundamental to the well-being of humanity as a whole. Such values transcend the particularities of humanity's richly diverse cultural, philosophical and social heritage and form the bedrock on which to build international cooperation. Such values are universal not just in their application to all of humanity but also in their application to all fields of human activity.
