Laws for the Rights of Nature to be Key Topic this weekend at Mobilized

for planetary and personal health.

Front and center conversations feature enabling rights of nature laws in 
your community.

Registration is free and provides a front row seat to the creation of a 
new digital network for our collective humanity.

According to Rights of Nature Activist and Attorney, Thomas Linze, a 
featured presenter on Sunday, June 13th at 3 pm Eastern (USA/Canada);

“Humanity stands at the brink of global environmental collapse. Our 
environmental protection laws more often protect the very corporations 
that they are supposed to regulate, rather than our rivers, forests, 
mountains, and other ecosystems.

    A global movement is starting to change that.

Using indigenous value systems to create legally enforceable rights for 
nature, cities, towns, and counties across the United States are 
creating laws that recognize the rights of nature.

This short primer from the Center for Democratic and Environmental 
Rights <http://www.centerforenvironmentalrights.org/>  describes the 
philosophy and underpinnings of the rights of nature movement that has 
emerged in the United States and beyond.

This session will include a segment on how to design and adopt “rights 
of nature” laws in your community.

    But right now, people within the community rights movement aren’t
    waiting for power brokers to fix the system.

They’re beginning to envision a new sustainability constitution by 
adopting new laws at the local level that are forcing those ideas upward 
into the state and national ones. In doing so, they are directly 
challenging the basic operating system of this country—one which 
currently elevates corporate “rights” above the rights of people, 
nature, and their communities—and changing it into one which recognizes 
a right to local, community self-government that cannot be overridden by 
corporations, or by governments wielded by corporate interests.

In a concerted effort to unite people around the world to overcome 
misunderstandings so that we can create a healthier co-Existence with 
our living planet, Mobilized is uniting  experts and advocates from the 
arts and sciences, public health and public advocacy, human rights and 
social activism, media makers, earth shakers and concerned individuals 
to harness the power and potential of communities to enable more health 
and well-being.

    This unique and participatory media event focuses on collaborative
    actions for system change.
