Aligning values, principles,

strategies & actions 

Values & worldviews 

My PhD research, coupled with experience as a strategy and evaluation practitioner in the development field, suggests that a worldview (Vidal, 2008) that includes values may be needed for more inclusive sustainable development.

“Guiding values" are advocated by Spiller, Barclay-Kerr & Panoho (2016). 

“Values are positioned as being like the two hulls of the waka (boat).” They are not separate from but form a “values system that creates the mauri ora (wellbeing) in a person, in the group, and in the world” where “values teach people how to adapt and thrive in a changing world” (p.55).
