    Hi Mumta

    Thanks for posting these links to the Rights of Nature ECI documents.

    I encourage members of the forum to take a look at the draft. It is an evolving document so your comments or questions will be helpful for Mumta and the core drafting team I am sure.

    Mumta – could you give us a personal update as to your process and progress with this important project?

    Best regards

    Lisa

    Thanks Lisa – project is progressing well. We now have an active team of approx 70 people working in 15 countries. We are at the start of Phase 2 (Phase 1 was about drafting the directive, doing research into EU policy and building the team; Phase 2 is about creating the communications material, building strategic alliances and building our supporter and funding base). There is also a review of the ECI regulation this year and I’m on the board of an organisation who are campaigning for changes that will make the instrument more citizen friendly (http://ecithatworks.org/). We are also organising a rights of nature tribunal and 8000 Drums ceremony at the COP21 Paris meeting in Dec (Toltec prophecy that when the 8000 drums beat for Mother Earth a massive healing will take place). Anyone who wishes to get involved or knows anyone who can assist with the cause get in touch with me! 🙂
