This Thursday, October 19th, is World Values Day. What is it?
“World Values Day is an opportunity for us to think about our most deeply held values and to act on them. This year we are paying special attention to the values of groups and organisations, and how by truly putting those values into action we can help to change the world.”

As a member of the Masonic Fraternity, each of us should think about and practice our values daily so that we become models for our families, our communities, and the world.
Here is a special opportunity to showcase the values the Fraternity teaches and declare them to the world.
I challenge each Mason to be a part of this worldwide effort.
Here is how to do it:
- Choose a value that’s most important for you, the one that motivates you through life, guides you through big issues and difficult choices, describes who you really are. See the Values Guide for Individuals for top tips on how to do this.
- Act on the value: Values are powerful when acted on! Do something NOW that brings your value passionately to life – something challenging, creative, fun. Decide that acting on your values is now part of your life. Do your bit to change the world. Use the Values Guide for ideas to get you started.
- Share what you’ve done across the world with #worldvaluesday or send it to us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or by email. Take a selfie holding the template you can download below, showing what you value. Send a photo or a video clip, write a haiku, record a song – whatever works best for you.
- Pass it on: Nominate at least one other person – family, friend or colleague – to do the same! Challenge them to choose their own important value, act on it, share it, and then pass the challenge on again to their friends. Let’s change the world together!
