2012 in Review: Progress for Nature’s Rights

Congratulations to Linda Sheehan and the Earth Law Center for the many ways you are in action advancing Rights of Nature and earth jurisprudence your first year!

From Earth Law Center By Linda Sheehan

Climate change fundamentally threatens both the rights of the natural world and the rights of people to be healthy and thrive.  In its first full year of operation, Earth Law Center has worked to advance these rights through advocacy, outreach and education.
