Rights of Nature: Protecting and Defending the Places We Live

Join us for 'Rights of Nature: Protecting and Defending the Places We Live' - part of this year's series of free, online WECAN Education and Advocacy Trainings for Women for Climate Justice!

During this training we will explore the paradigm-shifting work of Rights of Nature, and explain how this transformative legal framework is already being used around the world to challenge legal systems based on dominion over and exploitation of the Earth, and instead usher in a legal, social, political and economic framework based upon the inherent rights and natural laws of the Earth’s living systems. We will delve into examples of how U.S. and international communities are successfully enacting local Rights of Nature legislation as a tool to protect ecosystems, their communities and just climate solutions. Presenters will also share stories of the growing global movement for the Rights of Nature and the dynamic Rights of Nature Tribunals that have been held in countries worldwide.

Speakers include: Shannon Biggs (Co-Director of Movement Rights) and Osprey Orielle Lake (Executive Director of WECAN International).
