How can Ecocide Law help direct our techno-economic power?

Technology increases the speed and power of human activity, but does not make informed choices about the direction of those activities. How can making mass destruction of nature a crime before the International Criminal Court in the Hague – Ecocide Law – help direct our techno-economic power?

Welcome to a seminar about how making ecocide a crime can help:

  • reaching the Paris Agreement
  • protect biodiversity
  • protect human health
  • promote long-term economic stability and global security
  • prevent some illegal activities linked to organized crime
