The Rights of Nature – a Global Movement on the rise (and why it matters for protecting the planet)
WORKSHOP May 8. 2019, 10.15-12
Facilitated by: Natalia Greene (director at GARN) and Hana Begovic (organizer at GARN)
Rights of Nature is emerging as a powerful global movement to transform human consciousness; redesign failing, consumptive economic and social structures; and create a framework for living in harmony with nature, grounded in the recognition of the Rights of Mother Earth.
During this workshop, we will talk about how the Rights of Nature movement is rapidly expanding and growing, through constitutional recognition, national (and local) laws, treaty agreements, court cases, government administrative decisions, Tribunals, nonprofits and academic institutions working on the issues, researching, and more.
We will together open up a space for local movement-building, and dialogue on the Rights of Nature as a legal and cultural concept, and as a powerful tool available for protecting the planet and establishing balance in our biosphere.
Where? Room 204 in Annedalsseminariet, School of Global Studies, Seminariegatan 1A, 413 13 Gothenburg

The Global Alliance for the Rights of Nature (GARN), based in Quito, Ecuador, is a dynamic and diverse international network of organizations, communities and individuals dedicated to advancing the Rights of Nature movement, through active cooperation and collective action. It serves as an international hub for exchanging knowledge and information, building an intersectional movement, and fostering collaboration to forward the understanding and implementation of Rights of Nature.
GARN has played a central role in growing this cultural and legal shift, offering Rights of Nature expertise, establishing Earth jurisprudence through high profile Rights of Nature Tribunals, building awareness, and sharing education materials, resources and trainings to social movements, governments, allies, and communities around the world.
