Rights of Nature: Planting Seeds of Real Change is a new report challenging the corporate-led 'Green Economy' agenda at Rio+20 and explores in depth ways in which Rights of Nature can be applied as a legal tool for protecting the planet.
The report was made available on Sunday, June 17 at a symbolic signing of a so-called Universal Declaration on Rights of Mother Earth. Add your name to the Declaration.
The report – Rights of Nature: Planting Seeds of Real Change features visionary thinkers such as Maude Barlow, Vandana Shiva, Thomas B.K. Goldtooth, Pablo Solon, Cormac Cullinan, Mari Margil and others.
