Our core work

Legal Innovation

Pioneering wild laws, and legal techniques and strategies that implementEarth Jurisprudence and strengthen those who defend Nature, so that people can live inharmony with Nature.


We train activists, educators, lawmakers, and judges (amongst others) about Earth Jurisprudence and Rights of Nature so that they are empowered to take the ideas forward in their own work and spaces.


We conduct research, produce new knowledge and publish information on Earth Jurisprudence and the Rights of Nature, particularly in African contexts.


Our campaigns are aimed at building alliances that advance Earth Jurisprudence and bring about systemic changes to society, shifting the existing paradigm so that the value of recognizing Earth Jurisprudence is widely appreciated, a collaborative movement is built, and ecologically exploitative behaviour becomes socially unacceptable.
