WORLD YOUTH ALLIANCE CHARTER


The World Youth Alliance is composed of young women and men from every part of the
world. In cooperation with other organs of the international community, primarily the United
Nations and the European Union, the World Youth Alliance is committed to building free and
just societies through a culture of life. That culture affirms the inalienable dignity of the
person, defends the intrinsic right to life, nurtures the family, and fosters a social climate
favorable to integral development, solidarity, and mutual respect.
We recognize that the intrinsic dignity of the person is the foundation of every human right.
We believe this dignity is independent of any individual condition and that no human
community can grant or rescind that dignity.
We are convinced that the intrinsic dignity possessed by every human being from conception
to natural death is the foundation of everyones right to life. We believe that this inalienable
right to life is the basis of a free and just society and we believe that society through law and
culture has an obligation to protect the dignity of the person and thus protect the right to life.
We affirm that the fundamental unit of human society is the family, where women and men
learn to live in genuine freedom and solidarity, and where individuals are equipped to fulfill
their social obligations. We believe that the political community at the local, national and
international level is obliged to protect and nurture the family.
We believe that the authentic development of society can occur only in a culture that fosters
integral human development characterized by physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional
growth, in a climate of respect for the human person and the family.
We invite all those who share these convictions to join us in affirming them and give them
effect in public life at all levels.

I agree with the World Youth Alliance Charter!
