The Rights of Nature will have a voice during this year’s U.N. Water Conference held in New York. On Friday, March 24, 2023, the “Rights of Nature: The missing connection to enhance and implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on Water” event will take place in person at the U.N. Headquarters at 12:30 PM PT (3.30 PM ET), which will be streamed online via Zoom.

This event will explore why the Rights of Nature framework presents a powerful legal, non-anthropocentric, holistic tool for water restoration and protection, and how an Earth Rights-based approach to Nature can help meet and complement the global goals and objectives of restoration and protection of water ecosystems, as well as ensure water for the environment, effective governance and the maintenance of the ecosystem’s life cycle in benefit of Nature.
This will be presented through several cases of rights-bearing aquatic ecosystems.
