Dear Nature’s Rights Friends,
We have great news to share with you today! Our conference at the European Parliament on 29th March was a huge success. High-level speakers gave inspiring & supportive speeches about rights of nature to a full room. We made a great introduction of our cause to the EU institutions & are delighted at all the support we received from institutional players, MEPs and NGOs for the idea of bringing nature’s rights into European law and policy.
We will share the video with you soon. In the meantime, enjoy a few highlights & a selection of photos from this great conference.
Importantly, we didn’t go unnoticed! See IUCN’s webstory & an article in the DanishGlobalnyt. Belgian newspaper La Libre & the Better Society network also covered the conference.
Thank you for all your efforts in spreading news about our conference & to those who could not attend, for being with us in spirit. We could not have done it without you!
We take this momentum with us as we get organised for the European Citizens Initiative (ECI) – a petition to the EU showing that European citizens are in favor of nature’s rights. Gaining 1m statements of support from people in 7 Member States is a huge task and we need everyone – people, NGOs, institutions – to get involved! Next step on our campaign: local stakeholder workshops with relevant NGOs and institutions to organisejoint actions. Be there with Founder
