Should Mother Earth Have Legal Rights?

AN INTRODUCTION TO EARTH JURISPRUDENCE AND RIGHTS OF NATURE

Australian Wild Law AllianceThursday 6th June, Brisbane, Australia

For everyone in Brisbane/South East Queensland, you might be interested to join us for a free evening seminar at the Griffith University’s EcoCentre, Thursday 6th June titled “Should Mother Earth Have Legal Rights? An Introduction to Earth Jurisprudence and Rights of Nature“.

The rapidly growing ‘Rights of Nature’ movement seeks to weigh and balance the rights of humans against those of the whole Earth community. Ecuador have recognised Mother Nature in their constitution, Bolivia and more than a dozen municipal governments in the USA have Rights of Nature legislation and in New Zealand, the Whanganui River ecosystem has been granted ‘personhood’ rights. So where does Australia figure in this movement?
