Wild Law Conference
27 – 29 September 2013
Hosted by the Australian Wild Law Alliance (AWLA), which will soon be changing its name to the Australian Earth Laws Alliance – AELA (Pronounced ‘AY-LA’). The Alliance will begin using the name AELA from Monday 22nd July, onwards.
“Living within our ecological limits: law and governance to nurture the Earth community”
One of the key tenets of Earth Jurisprudence is that human societies must live within their ecological limits. But with our political and economic systems focused on growth, and humanity now using the equivalent of 1.5 Earths to meet our insatiable consumer demands – how do we reign in humanity’s use of the Earth and create governance systems that nurture, rather than destroy, the natural world?
In September 2013 the Australian Wild Law Alliance will host a multi-disciplinary conference aimed at exploring key questions for living within our ecological limits:
How do we know our ecological limits?
What legal and governance mechanisms can help us live within our limits?
How do we change our current economic, political and legal systems to create human societies that live in a harmonious relationship with the Earth community?
