WE ENVISION A FUTURE IN WHICH HUMANS AND NATURE FLOURISH TOGETHER.

 

Earth Law is the idea that ecosystems have the right to exist, thrive, and evolve—and that Nature should be able to defend its rights in court, just like people can.

Despite decades of environmental legislation, Earth’s health continues to decline. Because our current laws protect Nature only for the benefit of people and corporations, profit usually takes priority over Nature. Even when environmental issues are brought to court, people must prove that the environmental damage violates their own rights since the environment has no rights of its own.

Empowering Nature empowers communities: ELC connects these emerging local advocates to build regional movements, with the ultimate aim of creating national and international momentum for a radical change in how we view and interact with the Natural World.
