There are many organizations around the world working to change the system of law to protect the planet we live on. Here are a few we have found supportive and inspiring.

Australian Earth Laws Alliance (AELA) is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to increase the understanding and practical implementation of Earth centered governance in Australia, with a focus on law, economics, education, ethics, and the arts.  

AELA Earth Arts is a program created by the AELA dedicated to nurturing the role of creativity in transforming law and governance.

Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF) helps communities by providing the education, tools and legal advice they need to create Community Rights Ordinances. These laws give power back to the people to protect their local communities.

Earth Law Center‘s  mission is to transform the law to recognize, honor, and protect Nature’s inherent rights to exist, thrive, and evolve. Movement Rights works for climate justice, the rights of Indigenous peoples and Mother Earth.

Movement Generation Justice & Ecology Project inspires and engages in transformative action towards the liberation and restoration of land, labor, and culture. It is rooted in social movements led by low-income communities and communities of color committed to a Just Transition away from profit and pollution and towards healthy, resilient, and life-affirming local economies.

Movement Rights works for climate justice, the rights of indigenous peoples and Mother Earth/ Nature. 

Pachamama Alliance is a global community that offers people the chance to learn, connect, engage, travel, and cherish life for the purpose of creating a sustainable future that works for all. With roots deep in the Amazon rainforest, the  programs integrate indigenous wisdom with modern knowledge.
