As part of the South East Extinction Rebellion event:
Our head of Outreach & Campaigns Anita Van Rossum, has been invited to speak to the crowd gathered at the ‘Polly Higgins’ boat, moored outside the Maritime Museum - on Sunday 18th
Saturday 27th at 12.30pm in the Round Room
‘Culture - Jojo Mehta - Ecocide - Regenerating our Relationship to Nature ‘
Rory Spowers in discussion with Jojo Mehta, co-founder with the late Polly Higgins of the Stop Ecocide initiative, exploring how changing the rules of the game enables a deep shift in humanity’s relationship to Nature Over the last few centuries, humanity has separated itself from nature to such a degree that we seem intent on destroying the very systems that support life itself, through our relentless economic activities to supply passive ‘consumers’.
Nature has become merely 'natural capital'. But should we not see the destruction of rainforests, biodiversity, clean water sources and a stable climate, as atrocity crimes on a par with genocide, but of the natural world?
This is the premise upon which barrister Polly Higgins and activist Jojo Mehta founded the Stop Ecocide: Change the Law initiative to establish ‘the Missing International Crime of our Time’.
Joining The Re-Generation founder Rory Spowers, Jojo Mehta will explain the power of this one simple law to stem the tide of corporate destruction, realigning human law with a higher, universal law - and how you can be part of that.

Hope is everywhere”
