What if ecosystems could sue for violating the rights of nature in places like Alberta’s tar sands or Fukushima? What if communities could write new laws that place their rights and local ecosystems above corporate interests? Come find out about the first international Rights of Nature Tribunal and local California Community Bills of Rights, and how you can participate.
