How Law can save the Earth

TEDxHaarlem_Femke_wijdekop2-MarjoryHaringa In January 2013 Femke started working with the End Ecocide in Europe campaign and Polly Higgins’ global campaign to Eradicate Ecocide.
Listen to Femke Wijdekop, one of our volunteer, on a TEDx conference in Haarlem :

“The Enlightenment gave us fundamental rights and freedom. Unfortunately, we have used these rights mainly to exploit and dominate the natural world, helped along by a legal system which sees the Earth as property. Fortunately, Earth Lawyers around the world are now standing up, using law as a tool to heal our relationship with the Earth and restoring what has been damaged. I invite you to join them in supporting their cause.”
