Twelve Principles explores the relationship between personal and global change, and offers guidelines for a peaceful and sustainable future. Printed in full colour with 30 magnificent photographs, it includes inspiring personal accounts by twelve people around the world who have made a difference in their own lives and communities.


‘Twelve Principles is a timely reminder that the global crisis is at root a crisis in values, and that, by our thoughts and actions, each of us has an impact on what is happening in the world around us.’
