Getting Laws in Order for Ecocide

Yet another great article from The Ecologist — this time, the quest by recently passed Polly Higgins (barrister turned environmentalist) who worked to get laws in order to create the new crime of ecocide — – the mass destruction of ecosystems – mirroring the existing international law against genocide – the mass destruction of peoples.

Everyone has something to offer in the quest to save and protect our environment.

Get involved — from volunteering on eco projects, cutting back on consumption, helping educate others on what they can do to help — or in Polly’s case: change laws to support progress… EVERY bit helps!
