CEJ presented on a panel at the Earth Day celebration in Downtown Orlando. The panel, "Don't Frack with Florida: Key Environmental Policy Issues in the Sunshine State in 2016 and Beyond" discussed environmental issues Florida is facing, including fracking and biodiversity loss.
Our Manager of Programs & Operations, Margaret Stewart, discussed Earth Jurisprudence as a real solution and way forward.
Without greater legal consideration, we are going to continue to fight environmental degradation on a case by case basis. Margaret argued that Earth Jurisprudence, a more holistic legal approach to environmental protection, would address the greater problem at it's root.
We were thrilled to be a part of Central Florida's Earth Day this year. For more information, and to participate next year, click here.
