The Constitution of Papua New Guinea is the original sustainable development roadmap for the nation. It inspired the vision 2050 and was decades ahead of the call to action for the Sustainable Development Goals. Such a document cannot be forgotten; instead, it must be shared widely and reflected upon by the men and women, girls and boys that are alive today so that they too are inspired to achieve the promises as written in their constitution. In commemorating the journey and achievements of its most famous son, Sir Michael Somare, in this Tok Pisin translation of the Preamble, we hope it is also an opportunity to inspire others to walk the same path towards freedom, equality of opportunity and wellbeing of all Papua New Guineans.
