Code of Conduct

This document is to be read in conjunction with the Constitution of the Australian Peace Committee (SA) Inc.


PREAMBLE
The Australian Peace Committee (South Australia) Inc., hereinafter called the APC, is a non-sectarian, non-denominational, voluntary, not-for-profit, non-government organisation committed to achieving:


THE ABSENCE OF
1) direct violence and war,
2) structural violence which results when the quality of human life and the natural environment are diminished.
The APC is an organisation devoted to improving and enhancing quality of life; relieving suffering, poverty and distress through working to educate people on issues relating to peace and the non-violent resolution of disputes. We accumulate and disseminate current information and resources, alerting members and interested parties to the prevailing conditions of state, country and global environments.
The APC has as a mandate a responsibility to record our actions for future generations, realising that living memory is limited.

CODE OF CONDUCT
The APC has developed the Code of Conduct to ensure members have a framework from which to operate that includes:
a) TRUTH
b) RESPONSIBILITY
c) RESPECT
d) JUSTICE
on both a personal and organisational level.

ORGANISATIONAL IMPERATIVES
To develop a co-operative, co-ordinated, interdependent vision for a better future.
To expose the use of Weapons of Mass Destruction as being the antithesis of achieving peace.
To endeavour to better understand the social, political, cultural, economic and civic structures which can lead to violence, world chaos, social upheaval and extreme poverty.
To strive toward the identification of and support for measures which will restore and/or enhance Peace and common security.
To foster and promote the development of a sustainable global world which interacts using the four environments of existence, being
1) The human environment - the need for food, shelter, to ensure survival, with lifestyle focused on well-being, meaning and the ability to live a life of freedom with justice and dignity.
2) The natural environment - the health of the planet, the call to achieve ecological balance, the use of and subsequent disposal of nuclear materials.
3) The cultural environment - world views, lifestyles, interactions rich in diversity, tolerance and cross cultural understanding.
4) The economic and political environment - core assumptions and beliefs upon which a just society is organised, and institutions that foster a fairer world economy.

ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
*To assist in the realisation of our vision, each member of the APC must be aware of their role and their responsibility to the organisation.
*Only when delegated by a quorum of the Executive Committee shall any member
1) represent the APC
2) speak to media as an APC member
3) fundraise
4) write a submission as an APC member.
*Each member shall attempt to promote the aims of the APC.
