WELCOME TO
THE INTERNATIONAL RIGHTS OF NATURE TRIBUNAL

Concept

Rights of Nature is a new approach to environmental law, which views nature not as a series of resources that human beings can use, but as a living subject with its own interests and rights. 

Mission

To make the Rights of Nature an inextricable part of our legal system and society demonstrating how courts and judges should treat environmental cases through the Right of Nature Tribunals. 

Values

That the interests of nonhuman beings are of equal importance to human interests.That we as a society need a fundamental paradigm shift in how we relate to Nature.

We Care About Nature

The Tribunal aims to create a forum for people from all around the world to speak on behalf of nature, to protest the destruction of the Earth, destruction that is often sanctioned by governments and corporations, and to make recommendations about Earth’s protection and restoration.

The Tribunal also has a strong focus on enabling Indigenous Peoples to share their unique concerns and solutions about land, water, and culture with the global community.

OUR TRIBUNALS

“To facilitate their efforts, Rights of Nature (RoN) advocates Global alliance for the Rights of Nature (GARN) created a new international governing institution: the International Tribunal for the Rights of Nature. The idea was inspired by the International War Crimes Tribunal and the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal, established by citizens to investigate and publicize human rights violations.

Just as these tribunals provided social pressure to create and strengthen international Human Rights Law, the International Tribunal for the Rights of Nature is meant to foster international Rights of Nature law.” 

– CRAIG M. KAUFFMAN and PAMELA L. MARTIN
