Schumacher College's week long course on making new laws to protect nature

The laws of nature and laws of man often clash, and this doesn’t bode well for the environment. However, legislation has also been used to address eco issues such as conservation, recycling, endangered species, and resource management. Clearly our legal system can be made to work with our environment but how far do we want to go? What do we want to see happen in our communities with regards to this?

Polly Higgins, barrister and international environmental law specialist, is constantly working to create laws to safeguard our planet and its eco-systems. She will be running a course, starting in May, at Schumacher College focusing on constructing laws to propel society towards a greater harmony with the natural world. The course will illustrate how we can work on local, regional, and national levels to propel environmentally friendly laws forward and advance our personal and communal eco-agendas. She will be joined by Geomancer, Marko Pogacnick, president of the Association for Coexistence between Human Beings, Nature and the Environment, from Ljubljana.
