At a time while leaders and corporations continue to plunder the planet for their own short-term needs, at a time of social unrest while people everywhere don’t know whom to trust or believe–a new kind of network based on the ultimate network— Nature—has emerged. We’d love for you to be a part of it.
We invite you to join and take part in the Mobilized World Summit for planetary and Personal Health.
Beginning the weekend of June 12 and 13th, you will have a front-row seat to a diverse, dedicated consortium of artists and scientists, media makers and earth-shakers, environmental attorneys, and social advocates who are uniting in solidarity for planetary and personal health.
We plan to harness the power and wisdom of experts in their fields to collaboratively create the world’s first global commons for the health and well-being of people and the planet. Inspired by Nature, powered by passionate people, and empowered by imagination, this media series provides a front-row seat for people worldwide to contribute to the health and well-being of all people.
But that’s not it all.
The events during the Mobilized World Summit continue as we pick up the pace as we invite communities to take part and host their events which will be amplified across the borders to other communities.
A special keynote on Enabling Rights of Nature laws will be offered by Thomas Linzey, Senior Counsel for the Center for Democratic and Environmental Rights (CDER), an organization committed to globally advancing environmental rights. (He is the co-founder of the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF). Linzey firmly states:
“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 (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 designing and adopting “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.”
We can continue the way we’ve been, putting up walls between us, accepting policies and systems which plunder the planet and contribute to overwhelming economic debt while destroying our environment,
We can come together for the health of all life. The choice is yours because our future is in our hands—all of ours. You can sign up for free here.
