Rights of Nature Panel

What if Nature had Rights?

Panel Discussion
Sept 20th (Thursday), 6:00 – 7:30 pm
Many Nations Longhouse, UO (1630 Columbia St.)

  • Cameron LaFollette: Independent Researcher & Author
  • Craig Kauffman: Associate Professor of Poli Sci & Env Studies
  • Chris Maser: Ecologist, Author, International Lecturer & Consultant

Our current laws are simply incapable of stopping the wide-scale environmental destruction that the world is experiencing.

Rather than treating nature as property, rights of nature acknowledges that nature in all its life forms has the right to exist, evolve, and flourish.

And we, the people, have the legal authority and responsibility to enforce these rights.

Join us for a discussion on how such rights are being acknowledged and turned into law worldwide.  We will discuss how we can learn from what’s happening elsewhere to make Rights of Nature a reality here. Learn More Here!
