Discussion | Hearing Nature’s Voice: Perspectives from Law, Ethics, Business and Science

September 18, 2023 @ 6:00 pm 7:00 pm UTC-8

How can the world transition from anthropocentrism to ecocentrism? Join us on Monday, September 18 at 6 p.m. for “Hearing Nature’s Voice,” a discussion of why humans must shift away from their extractive and destructive dispositions towards nature.

Using modalities such as rights of nature, rights of future generations, earth ethics and nature-based governance, the conversation will explore how to help facilitate this transition so that we can combat climate change, biodiversity loss, and other forms of massive environmental degradation, as well as the human rights violations that go with them.

Panelists scheduled to speak include Natalia Greene (Global Alliance for the Rights of Nature), Nathan Lujan (Royal Ontario Museum and the University of Toronto), Gopal Patel (Center for Earth Ethics), Alexandra Pimor (Earth Law Center), and SD Smith (advisor to Ramapough Munsee Nation). CEE Executive Director Karenna Gore and Earth Law Center Executive Director Grant Wilson will introduce and moderate the program.

This event is free and open to the public. A reception will follow.
