1. Have a personal mission: be the change

Be the Change

Nothing changes unless you are aware of the need for change, and take responsibility for being part of the change. GVI workshop participants found the actions below to be helpful:

  • modeling values-based behavior e.g. being open and honest
  • having a personal mission and taking individual responsibility
  • developing self-awareness and reflection

What do you do to develop self-awareness and responsibility?


GVI produces publications on substantive issues from a values perspective, and linked to current events on the UN agenda. GVI also solicits and hosts articles by UN system actors, so you can hear your own voice in the conversation.
