Representatives of the Baha'i International Community's United Nations Office, Daniel Perell, Ming Hwee Chong and Julia Berger, discuss how their work to advance sustainable development relies upon the identification and application of spiritual principles (e.g. trusteeship, generosity, trustworthiness, love, empathy, compassion) and the fostering of genuine consultation (a process of collective, non-adversarial decision making), among diverse players on key contemporary issues. Reaching consensus at the international level can directly influence progress at the local level.
Communities worldwide are looking for ways to harmonize economic development and environmental protection. These videos give a glimpse of the Baha'i perspective on this movement towards sustainability.
