    Event description

    Join us for an introduction to the rapidly growing area of 'Rights of Nature' and Earth Laws by Dr Michelle Maloney.

    The need for new governance systems has never been greater: as we face a climate changed world and transition away from our destructive reliance of fossil fuels, human societies need to create new ways of working together and nurturing the wider Earth community.

    Michelle will introduce some of the emerging theories and practical developments happening around the world, to create more Earth-centred societies. We will explore the following topics:

    * An introduction to the theory of Earth laws (Earth jurisprudence) - which asks what it would look like if we had an Earth (or life-centred) system of law, economics, education, ethics and culture
    * An introduction to the growing global movements advocating for rights of nature, legal personhood laws for nature, and for ecocide to be recognised as a crime
    * What role can communities play in catalysing more Earth-centred law and governance in Australia?

    Anyone and everyone who's interested in this topic should join the workshop.
    This workshop is aimed at a general audience. All legal terms will be clearly explained and demystified.

    Dr Michelle Maloney is Co-Founder and National Convenor of the Australian Earth Laws Alliance (AELA), Adjunct Senior Fellow, Law Futures Centre, Griffith University; and Director of the New Economy Network Australia (NENA) and Future Dreaming Australia.

    The Australian Earth Laws Alliance (AELA) is a national not-for-profit
    organisation whose mission is to increase the understanding and
    practical implementation of Earth centred governance in Australia, with a
    focus on law, economics, education, ethics and the arts. AELA’s work is
    inspired by the theory and practice of Earth jurisprudence, which is a
    governance philosophy and growing social movement. Earth jurisprudence
    proposes that we rethink our legal, political, economic and governance
    systems so that they support, rather than undermine, the integrity and
    health of the Earth.
