World Values Day 2020

World Values Day 2020 was held on October 15th and along with my colleagues in the Canadian Values Community we took to social media to share how we’re putting values more at the heart of everything we do and bringing them to life.

Posts were viewed, shared and liked thousands of times, with the UK Values Alliance social media campaign on Twitter reaching the timelines of 72 million people around the world! The day helped people everywhere remember what matters most and how to put that into action.

We co-hosted the very first Canadian Values Conversations, Vancouver (2018), as part of a national initiative to discover what matters most to Canadians. Here are some of the top values selected.

What value most resonates with you right now (from the list or another)? How have you lived or seen this value-in-action? Share a note, photo or image and tell us!

Today is World Values Day! A lot matters to me these days but these 2 things: Family & Nature matter most. I can get through anything when I’m connected to these. For #WVD 2020 what matters most to you and how are you living it?

World Values Day 2019

At Thinking Partners we talk a lot about values and strive to live them vibrantly. Working with our clients, we help them identify and connect with their core values, to bring them more to life for greater fulfillment and impact.

A walk in the forest (pics from last weekend in Stanley Park) always feeds my wellbeing.

This year’s World Values Day theme on October 17th is “Values and Wellbeing.”

“When we are not aligned with our values, our own wellbeing and the wellbeing of others will suffer.” A first step to increasing your own wellbeing is to identify your core values, and this handy “Take a Values Break Guide,” prepared by the organizers of World Values Day, can help you identify those values that are important to you while you drink your morning coffee.

Once you’ve identified your values, it’s important to act on them. That could mean going for a walk in nature, turning your cellphone off for an entire weekend, learning a new language (might take more than a weekend!) volunteering with a local organization, calling a friend you’ve been meaning to catch up with. It’s the action that propels you towards a feeling of increased wellbeing and happiness. The more often you take actions that help you to live your values, the greater the sense of wellbeing!

Here are some ways to get involved:

 Happy World Values day!

Value: Wellbeing
Action: When busyness builds up, I’m reminded that health can’t be taken for granted. Rather than just keep ploughing through, I’m remembering to step back and listen to what my body needs. A walk in the trees, eat my veggies, dinner and laughing with my friends… when the going gets tough, I need to take care of myself first.



Value: Health
Action: Aware of our mortality, I’m being mindful of life routines and eating habits to maintain good health, while supporting loved ones who are dealing with illness.



Value: Family
Action: Keeping my work schedule flexible so my children can have lunch at home twice a week this year + taking 1 full day each weekend as a fun family day (no emails, work calls, appointments).
