In this one-page document we set out a brief introduction to values; exploring what they are, why they are important and how they can lead to a better world. We also introduce the principles of intrinsic and extrinsic values.
You're new to the concept of values and interested in finding out more.
Values are the principles or standards that each of us carry through our lives that guide and inform our thoughts, attitudes and actions. They influence, and are influenced by, our experience of the society in which we each live. Our values help determine what is important to us and shape how we interact with each other and all living beings in the world around us.
We might not be explicitly aware of them, but values are important influences in many aspects of our lives and have the potential to shape a better world.
