Building a Global Force of Advocates for the Rights of Nature
We work to ensure that laws of all governments recognize and protect nature’s inherent rights to exist, thrive and evolve. Through this work, we envision a future in which nature and humankind flourish together. Join us in fighting for nature's rights.
The International Rights of Nature Tribunal met in Paris December 4-5, in conjunction with UN climate talks. ELC acted as co-prosecutor for Mother Earth, giving a voice to nature's rights before a tribunal of world experts. For more, read the press release, the agenda and ELC's closing remarks.
ELC has just released a new report compiling and analyzing 100 "co-violations" of human rights and nature's rights worldwide. We released the report at a workshop at which we shared information and debated solutions to this escalating problem. Read the press release here.
