Values and Principles
Our guiding philosophy and overall principles are reflected in the following viewpoints:[check_list]
- Nature is vital for human survival not only today but for other generations in the future. Vietnam will not achieve sustainable development goals without conserving its natural resources. Conservation of biodiversity and sustainable management of natural resources help secure a better future for the next generations;
- Humans are part of the ecosystems they live in, and have the right to exist equally with other organisms. Therefore, people must be responsible for the protection of life to ensure we can coexist harmoniously with our environment;
- In dealing with environmental conflicts and problems, the impact on human welfare takes precedence, as we are the ones affected by the negative impacts on nature that we cause. We are also the ones who can provide solutions to these environmental problems;
- All people in society have the right to enjoy a healthy environment;
- PanNature protects public interests by preserving the benefits of a healthy environment for all. PanNature does not serve the interest of any specific person or group;
