Should Nature Have Rights? Discussion event with Justice House

In Upcoming Events, by , on November 21st, 2022

The Justice House Program and Vincentian Center for Justice, in conjunction with the 2022 International Climate Change Conference Simulation, is pleased to host a discussion on the question, Should Nature Have Rights?  

This discussion, open to everyone, will be led by Tish O’Dell, Community Organizer for Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund.

The goal of conferring rights to nature is to secure the highest level of environmental protection under which an ecosystem can thrive and whose rights are not violated. These nature rights are very often associated with human rights, especially the right to a clean and healthy environment.

The event is Thursday, Dec. 1, from 1:30 – 3 p.m. in Lower Level Gallagher Multipurpose Room, Niagara University.
