Welcome to Rights of Mother Earth

December 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.

Hello and welcome everybody to our December edition,

Dear Readers

We from Rights of Mother Earth will not participate in the Climate Conference in Bonn this year, but we would like to share with you what many of    our “sister” organisations are doing at the COP23.

The 4th International Rights of Nature Tribunal will be held in Bonn, Germany at the LVR Landesmuseum on the 7th and 8th of November 2017.  The Tribunal offers the opportunity to visualize a world in which law and authorities work in the side of Nature. It tests new legal concepts, the recognition of the Rights of Nature under the public law at the international and local level – based on the “Universal Declaration of the Rights of Nature” – which recognizes the rights of ecosystems to exist and the duty of humanity to respect the integrity of their life cycles.
