We are in need of designing an infographic highlighting the relationship between the rights of nature and climate change. As a partner to the ongoing Climate Strikes, we want to offer this infographic to partners in the U.S. and worldwide! Ideally, this graphic will be available in english, spanish and french!
Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time. We recently became a partner to the Climate Strikes and wants to make a tangible difference and help in what ways we can. The Rights of Nature is included as one of the five demands for the strike, and we want to offer partner material that they can use and will go viral!
Earth Law Center works to transform the law to recognize and protect nature’s inherent rights to exist, thrive and evolve.
We do this by building a force of advocates for nature's rights at the local, state, national, and international levels.
Our continued well being depends on a paradigm shift in law from a human based one to a nature based one so ecological communities also have rights and protections. This would mean securing legal rights for Marine Protected Areas like the Patagonian Sea can protect thousands of species of animals and help preserve that key ecosystem. Granting the Great Lakes legal rights ensures the protection and restoration of that ecosystem, resulting in a sustainable relationship between human needs and the needs of the ecosystem and species within. Thanks to help from Catchafire volunteers, ELC has launched a dozen legal initiatives this year and preparing to start new ones in 2018.
