Master Class - Integral Ecology and Climate Change : Does Nature have Rights? (Online)
Do you “Think like a Mountain”（Aldo Leopold) ? Or “Think of Two Mountains ” (President Xi Jiping ) ? Have you read Laudato Si and heard “Cry of the Poor, Cry of the Earth”, not as two cries but as one ?
In the face of the global climate change crisis, you are invited to join in the Master Class that is designed to revisit some of the key concepts and principles in Ecology.
Senior Counsel Dr Denis Chang recently made a key note presentation to a UNESCO co-sponsored international symposium on Integral Ecology and Climate Change. He will be sharing with us his reflections in the light of COP-27 and Rights of Nature environmental protection legislation and litigation in different countries, including last month’s historic ruling in the Waratah Coal Mine case in Australia where human rights were successfully invoked.
