Education

AELA is passionate about engaging in educational activities that help people understand and implement Earth centred law, governance and ethics.  Every year, AELA offers a range of workshops, seminars and public lectures to provide education about Earth jurisprudence and Earth laws.

COMMUNITY WORKSHOPS AND SEMINARS

AELA has hosted dozens of workshops around Australia, addressing topics such as: Earth jurisprudence, Earth democracy, Community and Nature’s Rights and Consumption and Ecological Limits. Our workshops aim to connect people interested in learning more about Earth jurisprudence, as well as people who are already working in Earth centred practice.  If you would like to co-host an Earth laws workshop, seminar or public lecture in your community, please get in touch with us any time – education@earthlaws.org.au  If you would like to see examples of AELA workshops, please visit our Events and Past Events webpages.
