The Rights of Nature / Commons

In the drive for unlimited growth, corporations and governments seek to commodify the Commons – the ecological, social and cultural resources and heritages that we all share – through takeovers, privatization and exploitation, often using free trade agreements as the principle vehicle. Speakers discuss this reality and promote the preservation and reclamation of these Commons by establishing the rights of nature.
