Webinar: Why we need a critical legal innovation to tackle climate change
Thurs 10th December @ 6pm AEST
Join us for an important discussion with one of the world's most innovative legal thinkers.
In his presentation, Paulo Magalhães will discuss the legal structural roots of the climate emergency, and provide an introduction to how we can rethink responsibility for our shared commons. He proposes a new approach to recognising the legal status of the Earth system that will enable us to tackle climate change together - the 'Earth condominium’ concept.
