Osprey Orielle Lake’s presentation at The Economics of Sustainability Conference 2014 focused on the reinvention of modern economies and legal frameworks so that humans can coexist in harmony and reciprocity with Nature. Modern environmental legal frameworks have failed to protect Mother Earth and most of the world’s economies are based on treating Nature as property. Accordingly, there is a need to replace the current model with a new just and restorative economy which considers social, gender, Indigenous, economic and environmental justice. The rights of Nature legal framework can affect our economies in a positive way as it requires a transition to a renewable energy and organic agriculture. Photo credit: Sam Euston
