This rousing Collection portrays the vibrant global movement of movements devoted to environmental health, justice, dignity, diversity, and democracy—to human rights and the rights of nature. It opposes the concentration of wealth and distribution of poverty. It augurs an ecologically literate, just civilization where taking care of nature means taking care of people—and taking care of people means taking care of nature.
These farsighted leaders explore: the power of storytelling and language; the long arc of movement building; capitalism and the climate; the power of diverse community organizing; rights for nature jurisprudence; the power of rights-based movement building. They say we’re all called upon to be leaders.
