Welcome to Rights of Mother Earth

May 2017

Our main goal is to collect 1,000,000 signatures from people around the world, asking the UN to adopt the Universal Declaration of Rights of Mother Earth, just like we have the Human Rights Declaration. The declaration shall serve as an aspiring document, for the next steps of each Nation to include Nature in the national legal systems as a rights bearing entity. We have already handed over the first part of the signatures to the UN Secretary General Bank-Ki Moon at the Earth Summit Rio+20, and when we reach the 1 million, we will hand them over to the UN again.

Hello and welcome everybody,

Last week on 21 April 2017 we celebrated Mother Earth Day in New York the 7th Interactive Dialogue of the UN General Assembly on Harmony with Nature, which had 'Earth Jurisprudence' as its overall theme. This is a remarkable milestone in securing rights for the Earth. Doris attended the conference to represent Rights of Mother Earth and Natures-Rights.org. Please see here for the full report in the news section. 

You can also find details of how you can get involved through various organisations here.

Here’s a photo of our team (and some visitors) in front of the EU parliament with Mumta Ito, who is spearheading the ECI for Nature’s Rights and here you can read an article about the event.
