Rights of nature attorney Thomas Linzey and First Nations Activist Patricia Johnson-Castle discuss the legal theory of rights of nature and how it is being asserted in lawsuits throughout the United States and Canada. We discuss some of the challenges associated with the western legal systems which generally do not recognize the rights of nature and what can be done to allow citizens and environmental groups to assert legal rights to protect our natural resources.
A weekly series produced by Steven Jay and hosted by Jeff Van Treese, Mobilized takes a deep look at our world, the consequences of human activity on our planet, and how we can reverse and prevent existing and future crises from occurring.
