Who Has the Right? Expanding the Rights of Individuals, Communities, and Nature
Much effort has been placed on establishing and enforcing environmental laws that define "safe" levels of toxic chemicals or require environmental disclosures for new development but do not, in the end, promote a healthy and sustainable world. Is this the most effective path to a better future? Given the past successes of movements to expand human rights in achieving social progress, should we consider establishing the rights of people to an unpolluted body, the right to a healthy environment, the rights of local governments to prevent corporations from operating polluting or damaging businesses in their communities, and the rights of nature?
Katherine Davies, Director of the Center for Creative Change at Antioch University, and Thomas Linzey, Executive Director of the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund, will join us for this thought-provoking conversation.
Please join us at 5:30 pm for a wine reception preceding the event.
