Ecopedagogy for Earth Rights: Co-Creating a Vibrant Culture of Peace

Author: Nikolas Berg, Ingrid Berg, Martin Hultman, Hana Begovic
This book is about the possibility of realising a sustainable relationship between humans and the rest of nature, partly by creating a sustainable planetary culture of peace in which it is a matter of course that ecosystems, too, have rights, and partly by developing our legal systems so that, in effect, it becomes illegal to destroy ecosystems. The question of how to make peace with nature seems to be present as an unspoken longing in many of the efforts, on every level and in every sector, to reach the goals of a sustainable society. Peace and rights are interconnected, and the conversation about the rights of nature is attracting more and more attention. This makes it important to examine these ideas more closely.

The time seems to be ripe for a new paradigm shift of the same magnitude as industrialization. The rights of nature could contribute to a process of revitalisation in which humanity’s destructive extraction of resources is transformed to support a truly circular economy within planetary boundaries. A sustainable culture based on peace and collaboration with nature is needed, rather than control, dominance and over-exploitation – a culture of peace in which we work with nature rather than against it. In Western society we are beginning to understand how to introduce a circular approach into economics and community building, but we have yet to transform this understanding into new behaviour, structures and laws.
