*What is ‘Right Livelihood’?
The ancient idea of right livelihood embodies the principle that each person should follow an occupation which respects other people and the natural world. It means being responsible for the consequences of our actions, taking only a fair share of the earth’s resources, and considering seven generations in all our decisions.
“What’s the use of a fine house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on?” Henry David Thoreau
“We are the ancestors of our grandchildren’s children. We look after them, just as our ancestors look after us. We aren’t here for ourselves. We are here for each other and for the children of our grandchildren.” – Roy Sesana, Botswana – Right Livelihood Award 2005
“We don’t inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.” – Moses Henry Cass
