Welcome to Rights of Mother Earth

We are asking the UN to adopt a Declaration of Rights of Mother Earth to compliment the Human Rights Declaration.

The request we are making to the UN this year to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Human Rights Declaration, is for the United Nations to formally engage in drafting a Declaration of Rights of Mother Earth to compliment the Human Rights Declaration. A Declaration that would inspire citizens across the world to change the way we relate to Nature. A declaration acknowledging Nature as a living being, deserving of rights and protection just like human beings.

Under current law, Nature is treated as a commodity and has no standing in court. This void in the law is at the core of the depletion and destruction endured by Nature.

As you know, we are proposing the Universal Declaration of Rights of Mother Earth from Cochabamba, to be adopted by the UN, or to use that beautiful Declaration as an inspiration for the drafting of an official UN Declaration. It includes the wisdom and knowledge of people from ancient and modern societies from around the world and points the way to aligning our laws and ways of living with those of Nature.

Dear Friends,

Happy New Year to you all!

Our 1st #EarthToo March for a Declaration of Rights of Mother Earth, which we held on 10 December 2018, honoring the 70th anniversary of the Human Rights Declaration was a delightful and successful event.

Please see here below the article written by Youth who participated in our annual Rights of Nature conference organized by http://www.osi-genevaforum.org at the UN in Geneva. We thank the youth and Edward Girardet from Global Geneva and Caroline Hunt for making this article possible.

We also thank Thomas Egli and Michele Egli and the Youth and everybody else who joined the #EarthToo march in Geneva. It was a sweet success and we are very happy about the participation of our youth.

In the meantime, dont forget our important goal of getting signatures for our petition.
