One Planet, One Habitation
A Bahá’í Perspective on Recasting Humanity's Relationship with the Natural World
Statement of the Bahá'í International Community
At Stockholm on 1 June 2022, at an event in the Swedish Parliament in association with the UN Stockholm+50 International Meeting, the Bahá'í International Community launched a new statement One Planet, One Habitation - A Bahá’í Perspective on Recasting Humanity's Relationship with the Natural World (OPOH). The statement was relaunched at the UN Climate Change COP27 in Egypt in November 2022.
The BIC has also created a website Working Toward One Planet, One Habitation, Sustainability and Environmental Efforts by Bahá'í Communities Around the World, which offers narratives on what the principles of OPOH could look like in practice.
The IEF has also prepared a simplified version of the OPOH statement suitable for older children and junior youth, in seven classes, with or without pictures of nature as illustrations, now available on a new "Materials for children and junior youth" page on the e-learning part of the IEF website.
This span of earth is but one homeland and one habitation.
It behooveth you to abandon vainglory which causeth alienation
and to set your hearts on whatever will ensure harmony.
