Earth Law Center – Awakening to earth rights

Earth Law CenterLinda Sheehan is Executive Director of the new Earth Law Center that opened in September at the Australian Wild Law Conference in Brisbane. Earth Law Center is a “think, share and do” organization dedicated to advancing laws, policies, economies, philosophies and governance systems that incorporate the inherent rights of all Earth’s inhabitants and ecosystems to co-exist, thrive and evolve.

To accomplish this mission, Earth Law Center takes on initiatives to develop, increase awareness of, and advocate for Earth-based laws, policies, economies, philosophies and governance systems. The Center works to broaden the vocal constituency for these initiatives through strategic alliances with legal professionals, NGOs, indigenous groups, scientists, students, government officials, green businesses, sustainable living organizations, and others.

Through these actions, Earth Law Center seeks to transform the law to recognize the inherent rights of all Earth’s inhabitants and ecosystems to co-exist, thrive and evolve.
