Description: Join us to learn about the future of environmental jurisprudence in light of climate change and biodiversity loss. Panelists will speak on how we can reframe our legal and cultural systems to embrace our interconnection with Nature rather than treating humans as separate from the natural world. Panelists will also discuss ecocentric legal and cultural movements from across the world, such as the growing number of governments embracing the Rights of Nature, the rights of future generations, and other paradigms.
