Welcome to Rights of Mother Earth

October 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. We will hand them over to the UN again next year for the 70th anniversary of the Human Rights Declaration asking the UN to adopt a Universal Declaration of Rights of Mother Earth as a key document, besides the Human Rights Declaration. 

Your help in getting to our target of 1.000,000 signatures is vital, if you would like to help by getting involved in collecting signatures, please sign our online petition on the right side of this page, and you can also download paper petitions, which you can access here. You can also find details of how you can get involved in other useful ways through various organizations here.
