Welcome to Rights of Mother Earth
Nature’s Rights Conference 29 March 2017 - head over to the News section for details of how and where to attend.
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.
Each month we are drawing ever closer to the 1 millionth signature, thanks to our dedicated volunteers who help spread the message of our campaign and you, the vital citizens of Mother Earth, who care enough to want to help maintain the integrity of our planet.
Thank you for being the Voice for Mother Earth, asking for her rights.
