One of the key tenets of Earth Jurisprudence is that human societies must live within their ecological limits. But with our political and economic systems focused on growth, and humanity now using the equivalent of 1.5 Earths to meet our insatiable consumer demands – how do we reign in humanity’s use of the Earth and create governance systems that nurture, rather than destroy, the natural world? The Australian Wild Law Alliance Conference 2013 will be a multi-disciplinary event, and will explore the theme of ‘law and governance for living within our ecological limits’. The call for papers is open until 30 July 2013.
