Please share: On June 9 at 6 pm, Snohomish County Community Rights (SCCR) will host an online Rights of Nature (RON) workshop by the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF) “Emancipating Nature: Securing legal rights for ecosystems”.
The workshop will cover the following:
> What is rights of nature?
> Where did it come from?
> Current status and highlight moments.
> The good, the bad, and the ugly – the need to protect rights of nature principles.
> The horizon for rights of nature laws.
On November 12, 6 pm at the SCCR quarterly meeting, Dr. Kriss Kevorkian will have a presentation “Environmental Grief, Ecocide and the Rights of Nature”.
Dr. Kevorkian will discuss how her research in environmental grief led her to discover the healing that comes with taking action to save our Mother. This unique form of grief is as much a paradigm shift in mental health as the rights of Nature are in the law.
We are inviting you to join us for the SCCR quarterly Zoom meeting and learn more about watersheds of the Snohomish County, their protection, rehabilitation, and importance for drinking water, ecosystems and climate.
