Join us for a wide ranging discussion with guests Shehana Gomez, Emma Bean, Natasha Bradshaw, Colin Robertson and Ronan Kennedy in which we explore the tricky and sometimes controversial topic of earth’s jurisprudence – do mountains and rivers have rights? We discuss the Universal Declaration of Mother Earth and how it applies here in the UK and ask: Is the law doing enough to protect and safeguard our rivers, our foreshore and our wild places? If not, what can and should we do?
