Rights of Nature Initiative (for Global Constitutions)

April 22 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm PDT

Come and discuss the document that could change everything. In the Fall of 2017, an initiative was filed with the Attorney General at the California State Capitol to put the Rights of Nature into the US Constitution. It was drafted by Clare Hedin who created it as a collaborative, living, document to be available for use throughout the global territories. It was reviewed and contributed to by Nature’s Rights, Tree Sisters, CELDF, Right To Amend, Polly Higgins (Eradicating Ecocide), and others.

At its heart it restores two main rights: A) The rights of human beings to have access to clean, healthy, regenerative nature, to have a say in their local environment’s development and stewarding, and, B) The rights of all living beings, including wildlands, seas, oceans, and air to have the right to their own healthy experience of themselves with the dignity that all life behests upon each living being and each natural system.

This document is ready and waiting to be applied anywhere and everywhere to protect the work being done by environmental and civil rights groups around the world, seeking justice and equal access to healthy and safe living systems.
