Opportunities, Risks, and Obstacles
Friday October 27, 2017
The Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF), with its International Center for the Rights of Nature, is partnering with Tulane Law School to host the Rights of Nature Symposium: Driving Rights of Nature into Law – Opportunities, Risks, and Obstacles.
The Symposium will bring together key leaders in the Rights of Nature movement – from Ecuador, Nepal, the United States, Australia, and other countries, as well as from local communities and tribal nations. Today, communities, people, and even governments are recognizing that there is a need to make a fundamental shift in humankind’s relationship with the natural world by placing the highest protections on nature through the recognition of legal rights.
Jason Flores-Williams, who initiated the Colorado River v. State of Colorado lawsuit, is one of our featured speakers. He joins Rights of Nature leaders from Nepal, Australia, Ecuador, and Sweden, and from tribal nations and local communities. Visit CELDF Rights of Nature Symposiumfor list of presenters including prominent leading attorneys, community leaders, professors, and Rights of Nature advocates from around the world.
