This podcast, hosted by the Director of the Victoria Law Foundation Lynne Haultain, explains what it means to give legal rights to nature and how this is demonstrated by recent legislative developments (in New Zealand, India, and other countries) that grant rivers legal personhood. The podcast features environmental law researcher Dr. Erin O’Donnell and economist Julia Talbot-Jones, who discuss the complexities of the Rights of Nature movement and its demands. Ultimately, they claim, rights of nature creates a framework for protecting the environment and natural resources under the law.
