Welcome to Rights of Mother Earth

July 2018

We are asking the UN to adopt a Declaration of Rights of Mother Earth to compliment the Human Rights Declaration.

The request we are making to the UN this year to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Human Rights Declaration, is for the United Nations to formally engage in drafting a Declaration of Rights of Mother Earth to compliment the Human Rights Declaration. A Declaration that would inspire citizens across the world to change the way we relate to Nature. A declaration acknowledging Nature as a living being, deserving of rights and protection just like human beings.

Under current law Nature is treated as a commodity and has no standing in court. This void in the law is at the core of the depletion and destruction endured by Nature. 

As you know, we are proposing the Universal Declaration of Rights of Mother Earth from Cochabamba, to be adopted by the UN, or to use that beautiful Declaration as an inspiration for the drafting of an official UN Declaration. It includes the wisdom and knowledge of people from ancient and modern societies from around the world and points the way to aligning our laws and ways of living with those of Nature. 

Our next steps in 2018:

We will present one million signatures to the UN General Assembly in New York in September. 

Would you like to help us achieve this goal this year?

It is a historical year marking the 70th anniversary of the Human Rights Declaration. Help us to make it even more historical by making it the year when the UN commits to drafting a Declaration of Rights of Mother Earth to compliment the Human Rights Declaration and a future in Harmony with Nature.

Please sign and share our petition widely, thank you!
