What if we acknowledged that nature has a legal right not to be polluted, undermined and destroyed?
Human activities threaten biodiversity to the extent that we are currently witnessing the sixth mass extinction of species. It is clear that environmental regulation, based on anthropocentric arguments, fails in its efforts to protect the natural environment. In this seminar, we highlight a global movement that promotes the idea that nature has intrinsic value and discuss what role the rights of nature play in sustainability transitions.
