Ecocide is ‘extensive damage, destruction to or loss of ecosystems’. We do not as of yet have an international crime of Ecocide – whether or not we choose Ecocide law is up to we the people. Do we choose to end the era of Ecocide?
In April 2010, I proposed to the United Nations a law of Ecocide. My proposal has at its heart a fundamental intrinsic value the sacredness of all life. Currently, our world is driven by laws that put proﬁt ﬁrst. How do we shift to a new way of being that prioritises intrinsic values, that values something for its own sake?
