Listen to “Episode 5: The Rights of Nature” on Spreaker.

Imagine a world where trees, rivers, and birds are given the same enforceable rights as humans. No, this idea isn’t a far-fetched utopia; it’s the premise of a new book by award-winning author Dr. David R. Boyd called The Rights of Nature: a legal revolution that could save the world.

Check out this conversation between Dr. David Boyd and Haida artist and lawyer Terri-Lynn Williams-Davidson. They spoke about the connection between the rights of nature and the Haida worldview at the UBC Museum of Anthropology to celebrate the launch of his book.

In this episode, we’ll discuss the legal revolution unfolding in courtrooms, legislatures, and communities worldwide – and how it could shape the future of our planet.
