Reestablishing our connection with Mother Earth is a process that we must all undertake from our communities, societies, authorities and the international community. To begin this process, we invite you to participate in the construction of norms and strategies to protect our Mother Earth through:

∞ A Law to establish the Mother Earth Defender

∞ A Law against Ecocide and to Protect Mother Earth

∞ The call to an Earth Assembly at the UN

∞ An Action Plan

Intervención del Vicepresidente de Bolivia, David Choquehuanca Céspedes en el lanzamiento del Re-Encuentro con la Madre Tierra

Draft

Law for the Defender
of Mother Earth

The purpose of this law is to define the structure and attributions of the Defender of Mother Earth, within the framework of the protection of the rights of Mother Earth, its components and life systems, recognized in the current legal system.

Draft Law

Law against Ecocide and to Protect Mother Earth

The purpose of this Law is to guarantee the protection of Mother Earth through the recognition of the crime of ecocide and the establishment of legal mechanisms that prevent serious damages and define the responsibilities and sanctions for individuals and legal entities, public or private, that violate the rights of Mother Earth.

Assembly of the Earth

“The General Assembly of the UN should consider the possibility of convening in the role of an Earth Assembly, in which the evolving non-anthropocentric or Earth-centred paradigm continues to unfold and finds a home in multilateralism”.

Paragraph 87, Report from the UN Secretary General
28/07/2020
