Whereas dominant and Western governance models have failed to achieve the healing, learning, equality, fairness and development objectives; and

Whereas some power elites have sought world domination and sovereign governments, corporations and other bodies have imposed dominant governance and development models, programmes and values in their projects which have contributed to the destruction of the environment and of Unique Peoples cultures and populations; and

Whereas NGOs respect the evolving declarations, charters and treaties of Unique Peoples, recognise Unique Peoples' rights to self-determination, rights to traditional territories, and to cultural, healing, identity and collective human rights,

b)    by the scrupulous respect of this Treaty;

c)    by sovereign nations and people recognising and supporting wellness of earth through drafting, redrafting, repealing, ratifying, and refreshing all other laws,


all agree to this covenant of peace and friendship.











Article 1.     Sovereign nations and people recognise that the wellness of earth and people is the Law above all laws, and use this Law as a guiding principle in drafting, redrafting, repealing, and ratifying all laws.


In order to promote international co-operation and to achieve peacefulness and harmony, ecological quality and abundance, economic wellbeing, social and political justice, and the equity, friendship, freedom, prosperity, and abundance that flows from these value priorities in wise action:


We sovereign nations and people undertake to respect and preserve the unalienable rights of all women, children, and men such as are recognised as inherent to the human condition and to recognise and protect them by embracing the following Directive Principles of Nation State Policy (Directive Principles) (refer Glossary) in drafting, redrafting, repealing, and ratifying law and regulations, as well as in conduct:


                     Towards sustaining the Wellness of Earth, People and all life forms:


a)    Love freely

b)    Give generously 

c)    Assist others when help is required


This Treaty recognises, supports, and contributes:


a)    towards the emergence of a new geisteswissenschaften throughout earth - meaning a new spirit of the social life world,


b)    away from the imposing of the economic life world, and imposing of the political life world, and the imposing of money, and


c)    towards more life, joy and wellbeing in our living and raising conscious and engaging in actions furthering life, joy and wellbeing..



Hence, this Treaty:


a)    recognises

b)    supports, and

c)    contributes


towards transformational consciousness raising that has been extensively happening at the margins for ages:


a)    Consciousness raising and behaviour change – Transition One (T1)

b)    Mobilising (T2), and

c)    Transforming (T3)

starting in human relating in the relational social spheres of life (mutual-help) and spreading through the many and varied economic and political spheres of life throughout earth.


                  Signatory sovereign nations will follow this Article 1 when drafting, redrafting, repealing, and ratifying legislation and regulation, and in their conduct.

Particularly will they reflect these three principles in any law and behaviour relating to maintaining conduct and correcting deviancy processes when individuals breach Article 1 within their respective nation states, with an emphasis on evolving humane caring residential and non-residential Therapeutic Communities (Glossary) and Well Living Processes and Places (Glossary) as alternatives to criminal and psychiatric incarceration.


                    These Directive Principles shall not be enforceable by any court, but they are nevertheless fundamental in the governance of nation states.

It shall be the duty of the nation state Signatories to always apply these Directive Principles of Nation State Policy in drafting, redrafting, repealing, and ratifying all laws and regulations at all levels of government and governance within said sovereign nations, and to apply these Directive Principles in all their conduct.

In recognising unalienable rights, the Undersigned pledge to embrace and follow the above principles.

Sovereign nations in drafting, redrafting, repealing, and ratifying law and regulations, and in the delivery of services (doing things for people), will actively support and establish a climate for a New Paradigm to emerge that includes people respecting earth and all life forms, doing things for themselves in self-help and mutual-help in exercising their un-alienable rights.

                  This Treaty towards a New Paradigm throughout earth, though binding upon the Signatories to this Treaty, is a Transitional Treaty that may, along with the Directive Principles be further evolved in Treaty Event Celebrations and other forums, without compromising its integrity, by people of earth exercising their unalienable rights.




Article 2.      The sovereign nations and people who ratify the terms of this Treaty entered into this Treaty to deliberate, determine, and act to fulfil the aforementioned purposes.

Our Unique Peoples Treaty is hereby established in recognition of the primacy of consciousness, the holistic interconnectedness of all life, the recognition and acceptance of the individual sovereign condition, and towards the wellness of earth, all people and all other life forms on earth.


Another fundamental under-standing is that there is difference in humanity and this difference profoundly enriches our individual, communal, and collective experience. There is separateness in our unity, and unity in our separateness. There is recognition of the evolutionary value of cultural variety’; the rich and potent pattern of variety-in-unity.

Towards harmony, friendship, and peace, sovereign nations and people in conduct as well as in law and regulations support the evolving of humanity away from homo aggressans (aggressive people) and towards homo amans (loving people).

Processes that work in supporting this evolving will be freely shared between all sovereign nations, and people that may use or adapt them to their local contexts.

Article 3.      As Members of this Covenant of Friendship, harmony and peace we the sovereign nations and people by our own free will, undertake to:


a)      Live in accordance with the Treaty Directive Principles set out in Article 1 and to not prevent others from doing the same

b)    Love freely

c)    Give generously 

d)    Assist others when help is required

Article 4.      We the sovereign nations and people undertake to uphold the Treaty and always apply the Directive Principles in drafting, redrafting repealing, and ratifying all laws and regulations.

Article 5.      We the sovereign nations and people undertake to respect and preserve planet earth in all its richness ensuring abundance and prosperity for future generations.


the above statements are hereby agreed to and affirmed.

Directive Principles of Nation State Policy


A concept adapted from the Indian Constitution and the Burmese Constitution.




Having extensive integrity




A German term meaning the spirit of the social life world.



a term used by the Raitaku people of South West Bougainville meaning loving wisdom in action.



A term introduced by Thomas Kuhn in his 1962 book The Structure of Scientific Revolutions suggesting that certain scientific works provide an open-ended resource: a framework of concepts, results, and procedures within which subsequent work is structured.


Normal science proceeds within such a framework or paradigm. The Merriam-Webster Online dictionary defines this usage as ‘a philosophical and theoretical framework of a scientific school or discipline within which theories, laws, and generalizations and the experiments performed in support of them are formulated; broadly: a philosophical or theoretical framework of any kind.


Therapeutic community


A therapeutic community is a process in which the community itself, through self-help and mutual-support is the principal means for promoting personal change.

In a therapeutic community residents and staff participate in running the community, contributing to a psychologically and physically safe learning environment where change can occur.
