Hello friends, we want to share an article written by Carlotta Byrne who coordinates the Earth Jurisprudence Programme at the Gaia Foundation.
She originally trained as a lawyer before taking a sabbatical to do community food growing. She lived and worked at Schumacher College where she encountered Gaia’s work on Earth Jurisprudence. The philosophy and movement resonated deeply and she feels privileged to support and accompany a growing network of Earth Jurisprudence Practitioners in Africa and beyond.
Please read up and learn more about Rights of Nature through this eloquent and interesting article!
“In response to the challenges of our modern times, a vibrant Earth Jurisprudence movement is growing in Africa promoting the revival and enhancement of the continent’s rich cultural heritage of ecologically-rooted traditions and Earth-centred customary governance systems.”
