The roots of the converging crises we face lie, ultimately, in our broken relationship with Mother Earth – in seeing ourselves as separate and superior to the living systems that sustain us. 

As both a philosophy and practice, Earth Jurisprudence calls for a radical transformation from human-centred to Earth-centred ways of being in the world; for us to heal our broken relationship with the web of life.

From 19-23rd April we will celebrate the first ever online #EarthJurisprudence Week, sharing stories, quotes, films and more that shed light on the many dimensions of Earth Jurisprudence and how it can help us live in an Earth-centred way. 

Join us to:

  • Explore how Earth Jurisprudence calls for revolutions in law, academia, activism and other walks of life;
  • Hear from Indigenous and traditional communities who have never lost their connection with Nature;
  • Be inspired by stories of the symbiotic revival of ecosystems and Earth-centred cultures; 
  • Undertake a Nature-based practice for each day of Earth Jurisprudence week.

Read on to learn more and find out how you can get involved with Earth Jurisprudence week.

Warmest wishes,

5 Practices for Earth Jurisprudence Week

Earth Jurisprudence is deeply rooted in our lived connection with Mother Earth. In other words, it is a verb, not a noun; a way of being and acting in the world, not a ‘thing’. 

To help you tune in to Mother Earth’s rhythms during Earth Jurisprudence week we have prepared 5 practices. They cost nothing but time and anyone can do them. So join us in making a commitment to reconnect with your place on our living planet this week- you won’t regret it!
