HOW WE LIVE OUR VALUES
Everybody who is connected to BSL – close or distant – is an important part of bringing our shared mission alive. As such, each of us signs a personal commitment as a stakeholder of BSL to our desire of collaborating towards a better world.
None of us claims to be perfect – we are all on a personal and shared journey of learning and as such, rather than seeking perfection, we use these values to guide our personal and institutional development.
“There is no planet B.”- 50+20
“The day we stop learning, we start dying.” - Unknown
While these values are related to the BSL mission and serve as a guiding basis for our way of collaborating and working together while at BSL, we fully recognize and acknowledge that each individual or organization engaging with BSL carries their own values that may go above and beyond what we have jointly established here.
It is our hope that our values do not contradict or violate any such values. Should this nonetheless be the case, please do let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org, at the attention of the BSL leadership team. We see both our mission and values as a continuous process of evolution.
“If you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.” – Erika Jong
“It is better to ask for forgiveness than for permission.” - Ignacio de Loyola
TRANSLATING OUR VALUES INTO OBSERVABLE BEHAVIOR
A wonderful way to engage with our values is to set development goals for us individually or as teams.
OUR PERSONAL PLEDGE
Everybody at BSL, administration, faculty, and students, sign a personal pledge to commit and engage toward our shared mission and values which shall guide our intention, behavior and actions at BSL .
