It is time to stop thinking we must protect nature and recognize that, much as every other life form on Earth, we are nature.
Traditional indigenous and ecological knowledge is the basis of the Rights of Nature, which constitutes an important piece of the social justice and climate justice mosaic. Shifting law and culture to recognize legal standing for nature means that human activities and development must not interfere with the ability of ecosystems and healthy vibrant human communities to absorb their impacts; to regenerate their natural capacities; to thrive and evolve, and it requires that those responsible for destruction, including corporate actors and governments, be held fully accountable for their actions.
