We have reached the planetary phase of human development. How will we govern ourselves? When we see the perils of climate change and other environmental degradation, we often think of the economic system as the culprit. We might ask, however, what is the role of law? How does the “rule of law” hinder movement to an ecological age and how might reform of law help?
There has been much work on these questions over the last 20 years. Earth jurisprudence, Earth law, ecocentric law . . . this line of thought goes by many names. Each of them seeks to re-envision and re-think the human community within the larger community of life and life systems.
On June 3, Herman Greene, JD, DMin, Board Member of the Earth Law Center, and President of the Center for Ecozoic Studies, will lead our discussion on emerging ecocentric law and the responses that it will require from us.
