Rights of Nature panel at SF Green Festival

Does a river have a right to flow? US law recognizes nature as property for exploitation rather than as an ecosystem with the right to thrive. US communities, Ecuador, and the United Nations are changing the way we treat nature by saying we are part of it, not owners it. How can changing law to incorporate rights of nature enable us to better protect our environment?

Please join Shannon Biggs of Global Exchange, Ami Marcus of the Mt. Shasta Community Rights Project, and Leila Salazar-López of Amazon Watch as they discuss these questions and more at the SF Green Festival next month!

  • When: Saturday April 9th 3:30 p.m.
  • Where: the Community Action Pavilion, SF Concourse Exhibition Center
