Our ambition is to elevate the status of Nature at the United Nations by creating a State of Nature. In addition to this, we recognize Rights of Nature as a key global legal movement, instrumental in preserving and restoring the health of Nature for future generations.
Inspired by the original Indigenous worldview, a global movement is currently underway to recognize that nature is not mere property, but instead has inherent rights, such as a forest’s right to health or a river’s right to flow. Ecuador first made history by recognizing the Rights of Nature in its Constitution only 12 years ago.
A seat at the negotiation table means the ecosystems that support life and our shared prosperity are represented and environmental concerns are taken into consideration as much as political and economic ones.
