International Golden Rule Day

Treat others and the Planet as you would like to be treated

Treat others and the Earth as you would like to be treated. #GoldenRule


In 2007, URI-Africa and Interfaith Peace-building Initiative (a URI Cooperation Circle member) declared April 5 as “Golden Rule Day” in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia  and called upon all citizens of the world and many other organizations, including the United Nations, to join them in proclaiming the day and  living everyday according to the teaching of the Golden Rule in order to make our  world better and more peaceful for all.

Since then, about 700 organizations in 165 countries have joined in proclaiming Golden Rule Day and a request for a United Nations declaration of Golden Rule Day is pending before the General Assembly.

Below is the official declaration of Golden Rule Day and we invite you to use it as a template to issue a similar proclamartion for your city, organization, house of worship, school, etc. When you do, you will join organizations such as the United Religions Initiative, Institute of Religions & Public Policy, TANENBAUM,  the office of the Governor of Arizona, the Arizona Interfaith Movement, the North American Interfaith Network, Association of World Citizens, Pax Christ International and many others.
