The Vow

We accept our place in the community of life; we ally ourselves with mountains, waters, and everything that lives, for the protection and restoration of the whole earth and all beings, human or nonhuman, known or unknown, near or far, born or to be born. We make this request of animals, plants, waters, mountains, valleys, clouds, rocks, individually and collectively: to accept our vow of support and join with us in this protection, restoration, renewal and regeneration.

We support the Universal Declaration of the Rights of Nature.

The Alliance reaches out to the public through teaching, writing, and retreats, offering this vision of the human role in the community of life, grounded in the tangible reality of holding and caring for the shared land.
