2014 Rights of Nature Global Conference
Jan 13, 2014 - Jan 16, 2014 • Quito, Ecuador
The Global Alliance for the Rights of Nature is convening a group of community and indigenous leaders from countries around the world dedicated to establishing legal rights for nature’s varied ecosystems. The alliance has been developing as a movement in a number of places — including Ecuador, South Africa, India, Australia, Nepal and the United States — and has begun the long process of endowing nature with defensible legal rights.
The Alliance’s intent is to leverage this forum to define a framework for galvanizing the movement on a global scale and developing some common operating procedures and goals. This is the moment when what has to date been a decentralized effort will start to cohere into a more carefully coordinated global movement.
An initial grant from Blackstone Ranch Institute for this convening has been matched by a grant from the Wallace Global Fund.
