Nonhuman Rights

Nonhuman Rights

We lack a universally accepted ethical and legal framework for nonhuman rights that redefines our collaborative relationship with nature and the other millions of species on the planet, as one of equals. We overlook the need for nonhuman-centered design that embraces nature within our sphere of empathy.

Moreover, just as we map human stakeholders, we need to map nonhuman stakeholders to align mutual interests and influence. We need a legal framework protecting nonhuman rights and the Planet as a partner that cannot be exploited in a PPP; and legal representation or guardianship to take legal action if those rights are breached.
