“The Rights of Nature,” TedX talk by Attorney Mumta Ito, Findhorn, UK
This is a clear and powerful talk by our friend, Mumta Ito, an environmental law attorney who has dedicated her career for standing up for the Nature that sustains us all. “Environmental law is failing, and will continue to fail, as it comes from the paradigm that created the problems.”“The rights of Nature are [now beginning to] being recognized in law….”When we establish the rights of nature in Law, we activate the codes for love and compassion for all beings…to live in accordance with that requires a personal transformation….in our current paradigms, we don’t have the answers.”
Feel free to forward to your friends, to show in classrooms, to engage people in ethical discussion.
