Weitere Informationen

The most famous Rights of Nature initiatives are from South America and New Zealand. Europe has started to explore the idea as well. A reflection on global trends helps to understand the limits and potential of the local legal context, with a particular focus on Austria, Switzerland, Bavaria, and South Tyrol. It becomes clear that the malleability of the movement represents both its strength and weakness.
