We will formally establish the International Tribunal for the Rights of Nature on 4 December 2015 in Paris. We are inviting you to be part of this historic event. Take a stand and commitment the support of your organization or personally endorse the Tribunal Convention.
We know that when we disrespect and harm Nature we diminish ourselves and impoverish our children. A human right to life and dignity is meaningless without water and wilderness. Join us and get back to what really matters.
Learn how you can help bring about showcasing rights of nature as a real alternative to privatizing ecosystems during the UN Climate Conference in Paris. Please donate if you can, and share the campaign on your own pages. Our joint goal is to raise $16,000 in the next 40 days to give nature a real voice in Paris. Thank you!
