Summary
"This book provides practictioners from diverse cultures around the world the opportunity to describe their own projects, successes, and challenges in moving toward a legal personhood for Nature. It includes contributions from Nepal, New Zealand, U.S. Native American cultures, and Scotland, amongst others, by practitioners working on projects that can be integrated into a Rights of Nature framework. The authors also tackle required changes to shift the paradigm such as thinking of Nature in a sacred manner, questioning Nature's rights versus human rights, conceptualization of restoration, and the removal of a large-scale energy infrastructure"--
