I am happily dedicated to the Global Ethic Project of building shared ground for a better world. I believe the Global Ethic Declaration testifies to the unifying aspiration of the diverse human family to cooperatively exercise and cultivate voluntary responsibility aimed at the dignity of all fellow human beings. As a list of values, the Global Ethic commitments are a list of desirable orientations that is attractive to anyone identifying as a human being among other fellow human beings and (a) looking for proven ways to get along well with them, especially in diverse or intercultural settings, and / or (b) looking for cosmopolitan purpose and guidance in building a better world with others. – As an ethic in the traditional sense of ethos – an attitude of character, an embodied disposition to act a certain way – Global Ethic commitments take the form of cosmopolitan virtues that shape and shade all habitualized and creative action. – Finally, as a practice, Global Ethic is the capacity for dialogue, built in the confluence of practicing all the commitments together. In Küng's tradition, the capacity for dialogue is central because it combines the steadfastness of religious truths with a readiness to learn and transform towards peace. And it is central for Global Ethic philosopher Claus Dierksmeier as the practice of globally responsible freedom as a method, as the exercise of procedural and participatory liberty.

I whole-heartedly endorse the expanded Global Ethic Declaration. The "new" commitment to a culture of sustainability and care for the Earth is a re-discovery of the thousand-year-old ethical standard of the popular indigenous belief systems all over the Earth that human beings are just a small part of nature and creation and that humans should respect and live in harmony with nature and all other creation. The culture of sustainability and care for the Earth is not only a common ethical norm in religion but also reflected in philosophy, for example the "ecological imperative" of Hans Jonas.
