The Rights of Nature brings together the voices of acclaimed authors, progressive thinkers, political leaders and environmental and community activists from around the world (including Maude Barlow) who share their passion and insights about the Declaration, the Rights of Nature and the urgent need to recognize the unbreakable link between respecting ourselves and respecting the planet – Mother Earth – on which we all live and depend. The authors all reflect on the important question: What would our world look like if nature had rights?
