We are all part of Mother Earth, an indivisible, living community of interrelated forms. All forms of exploitation, abuse and contamination have caused great destruction to Mother Earth.
Today nature is treated as property under the law. Nature has no standing and therefore, cannot be represented directly in a court of law. Our goal is for nature to have rights just like humans and even corporations have. We want humans and corporations to value nature as a living being in all its life forms with the right to exist, persist, maintain and regenerate its vital cycles rather than being seen as property — a resource to be consumed.
Be the voice for Rights of Mother Earth at the Earth Summit 2012/Rio+20.
Write a letter addressed to your country’s President or Head of State. Say why you would like your country to adopt Rights of Nature.
Our goal is to collect 1,000,000 letters written to world leaders by individuals like you. The letters call forth the worldwide acceptance and implementation of the Universal Declaration of The Rights of Mother Earth. http://therightsofnature.org/universal-declaration/
Email your letters to letters@RightsOfMotherEarth.com. Or mail to:
