Do Rights of Nature laws stop all human activities and development?


No, they don’t. But we do need to rethink some of our activities and limit our most destructive practices – and industrial societies need to rethink our attitude towards what we can demand from our finite planet. Recognizing Rights of Nature does not stop human activities. It instead places them in the context of a healthy relationship where the survival of the natural world we depend on for our own existence is not threatened by our activities.
