A CEJ Webinar Series
Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2016: Rights of Nature: What Are They?
Join us for this two part webinar!
The first half will be lead by Sr. Pat Siemen, lecturing on the history of the Rights of Nature movement and answering the question "what are rights of nature?"
The second half will showcase Shannon Biggs from Movement Rights addressing Community Rights.
Shannon is co-founder and Director of Movement Rights, which focuses on assisting communities confronted by corporate harms to enact binding laws that place the rights of communities and nature above the claimed legal “rights” of corporations. She is the co-author of two books, Building the Green Economy: Success Stories from the Grass Roots and The Rights of Nature.
She is also a leading international speaker, author and activist on the growing movement for Rights of Nature.
This web-based seminar series explores emergent legal systems and cultural themes and addresses the intrinsic rights of nature and the international Earth laws movement. Topics will include law and policy, ethics, principles of environmental sustainability, science, and spirituality.
