Declaration of the ecological state of Montenegro
We, members of the Parliament of the Republic of Montenegro, are aware that the protection of Nature, of the identity of the country in which we live and work, has become a foundation of our work. Convinced of our debt to Nature, source of health and inspiration for freedom and culture, we devote ourselves to its protection, for the love we have for our descendants and for the prosperity to come. We recognize that all of our differences are less important than changes in the environment in which we live. Regardless of our national, religious, political feelings and convictions, we are aware that the dignity and happiness of human beings are intrinsically linked with the fulfillment and purity of Nature. Man and the creation in him and around him are unique in their deep meaning. The abuses of Man have always been abuses against Nature. Our permanent struggle for human dignity will also be valid for the respect of Nature. By adopting this Declaration, Montenegro defines its respectful attitude towards Nature as an official state policy and asks all peoples to show wisdom in doing everything to avoid an ecological disaster.
