At a time that major human problems are on the rise due to social, political, economic and climatic change that bring about a sense of uncertainty on the existence of human race, the time has come to get together and reach at a long term solution through a concrete mechanism on the collective rationale and consensus. I think that this endorsement of Global Ethic will go a long way to fulfill this objective.

Indeed, what is needed in an age of ecological destruction is a moral vision that can inspire moral will, moral imagination, moral courage and moral leadership. Such a vision needs to be translated in appropriate values, middle axioms, virtues, duties and rights. A global ethic guides the whole of humanity in the right direction.
