The Centre for Law & the Environment (CLE) at the University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, in collaboration with the UBC Sustainability Initiative and the Center for Democratic and Environmental Rights (CDER), is organizing a series of webinars and a workshop for individuals and organizations from Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities interested in enacting laws that respect and protect non-human beings like rivers, lakes, species and ecosystems. Attendees will hear directly from people who have taken part in campaigns to achieve legal recognition of non-human relations in Canada and abroad, about why and how they pursued such recognition, what opportunities and obstacles they encountered and what lessons they learned.
This third webinar will focus on non-human species. Panelists will discuss efforts to secure legally effective recognition of non-human plants and animals as rights holders in Indigenous and non-Indigenous legal systems.Back to Calendar
