A space for dialogue and co-creation about the idea that Nature, not just humans, have rights. Can this idea be the foundation for a new dimension of respect and harmony between humanity and the planet? The legal and existential dimensions of this question are raised and examined, in dialogue with leading voices for Earth rights from different parts of the world.

This is the second international conference on Earth Rights arranged by Lodyn, the Sigtuna Foundation and Cemus. In cooperation with WWF, End Ecocide Sweden, Ekobanken, Färnebo Folkhögskola, Global Alliance For The Rights Of Nature (GARN), and Solidarity Sweden – Latin America (Latinamerikagrupperna)
