Baha’i know the importance of protecting and preserving the environment. Baha’ullah called it a “sacred trust” that should be protected and preserved for future generations. Biodiversity and conservation are important as well as the well-being of all living things because all things are interconnected.
Balance and harmony are essential for the well-being of the planet and all living things. Science and technology should be used in the service of humanity and the environment in a responsible and sustainable way. Spiritual and moral values should lead decision making. And because these choices are global in nature, international cooperation is necessary.
