Event Details

Friends of the Earth Northern Ireland and the School of Law, at Queen's University, Belfast, invite you to hear Polly Higgins - International lawyer and author.

Polly will be introduced by BBC presenter William Crawley

In 2010 Polly Higgins proposed to the United Nations a law that will create a legal duty of care on all nations to prevent loss and damage to the planet on a global scale. By criminalising mass damage, destruction to or loss of ecosystems, governments and the flow of finance shall all be given the choice: change or be held to account.

The law of Ecocide creates the bridge to end the era of Ecocide and leave a very different type of legacy for our children. A legacy where people and planet are put first above profit. The one thing that can prevent this law being put in place is lack of support.

Doors will open from 7pm, with the event starting promptly at 7.30pm. Refreshments will served after the event.
