Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500
~ Idea 301 ~ 7 May 1995
The United Nations has done a great work for human rights.
But the time has also come to raise the question of human duties and responsibilities.
I am glad that an International Council of Human Duties has been created in Trieste, Italy, under the chairwomanship of Professora Rita Levi Montalcini. The Declaration will be submitted to a youth conference in San Francisco on the fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the UN Charter. I signed the Declaration with delight.
I recommend that the UN celebrate in 1998 the 50th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and begin work on the adoption of a Universal Declaration of Human Duties and Responsibilities.
DECLARATION OF HUMAN DUTIES
a code of Ethics and Shared Responsibilities
(The Trieste Declaration)
IT IS THE DUTY OF EVERY HUMAN BEING TO:1. respect human dignity as well as ethnic, cultural and religious diversity
Each life must be a contribution to better lives of the next and future generations.

Many persons have a wrong idea of
what constitutes true happiness.
It is not attained through self-gratification but through
fidelity to a worthy purpose.
