Permaculture ethics and Human Rights Continued

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights  (here), states in 


Article 25.

  • (1) Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.
  • (2) Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born in or out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection.
The use of the male pronoun aside, this Article is a direct connect to the permaculture ethic of Care for People. 

In my next post, I will discuss how this article and part of the preamble to the Declaration connect with the ethic of Care for the Earth.
