I, ________________solemnly pledge to work towards preserving my health and the health of my family and community by protecting and preserving the planet’s natural ecosystems on which human health depends.
The health of the planet, people, and their communities will be my first consideration.
I will maintain the utmost respect for human life, as well as reverence for the diversity of life on Earth, and for the natural systems which support all life.
I will attend to my own health and well-being, by adopting and incorporating plant-based nutrition principles, in order to better serve my family, my community, and the planet to the best of my abilities.
I will fight for equity and justice by actively addressing the environmental, food, and social crises through my actions at home, in my community, and in my profession, so as to protect the planet and all of its life forms for current and future generations.
I will strive to be a role model for my children, family, and community by striving to embody planetary and plant-based health principles in my own life, acknowledging that this requires maintaining the vitality of our common home.
I make these promises solemnly, freely, and upon my honor and self-respect. By taking this pledge, I am committing to a vision of personal, community, and planetary health that will enable the diversity of life on our planet to thrive now and in the future.
