What are the Ten Principles?

Last Updated -

The 10 Principles of Burning Man Burning Man co-founder Larry Harvey wrote the Ten Principles in 2004 as guidelines for the newly-formed Regional Network. They were crafted not as a dictate of how people should be and act, but as a reflection of the community’s ethos and culture as it had organically developed since the event’s inception.

The 10 Principles are:

Radical Inclusion
Gifting
Decommodification
Radical Self-reliance
Communal Effort
Civic Responsibility
Leaving No Trace
Participation
Immediacy
