RIGHTS OF NATURE WISCONSIN
Since we kicked off the Rights of Nature Wisconsin effort in late 2022, our group has made some significant progress! Milwaukee County recently passed a resolution for Rights of Nature and there will be a signing ceremony later in October. We continue to look for other communities around the state that would be interested in Rights of Nature ordinances. We can all be part of building this movement and restoring our proper relationship with the natural world. We invite you to join us.
We envision a world where the inherent rights of nature are respected and protected, and where the natural world is recognized as a living, breathing entity with its own intrinsic value and worth. We believe that all living things must exist in harmony, and that the health and well-being of the many interconnected ecological systems of the planet is essential to the health and welfare of all beings, including humans.
How is nature treated under commerce? Many communities are looking for help with their water. Under the current environmental legal structure, it legalizes harm! Regulations are written by the extractors. Is there an issue in your community? How far have you gotten without local control? It is time to build a new reality.
