SENSING NATURE FROM WITHIN: SHOULD NATURE BE GRANTED LEGAL RIGHTS?

Seminar
The project Sensing Nature from Within is part international art exhibition featuring 12 artists and artist groups, part extensive programme of lectures, talks, and performances. Welcome to this second seminar where we will discuss how the modern society’s attitude toward the living world has proven dangerously unsustainable. As a result, the interest is now growing for more holistic worldviews and in several places around the world, judicial bodies have for the first time recognised nature as a legal subject.

The seminar begins with four lectures followed by a moderated discussion between seminar participants and the audience. 

Ursula Biemann: Artist whose work Forest Law transports us to Sarayuku in the Amazon Rainforest where the indigenous population has managed to push back commercial exploitation by gaining support for their holistic worldview.

Anders Ögren: Lecturer in Economic History at Lund University. Explores the emergence of the concepts of economy and ecology.

David Harnesk: Associate Professor at the Lund University Center for Sustainability Studies. Examines how social movements have managed to achieve environmental conservation effects by shifting ownership.

Mona Persson: Politician and a member of the Sámi Parliament, who has advocated a support for The Universal Declaration of the Rights of Mother Earth.

Moderator: Pella Larsdotter Thiel. Ecologist working with Transition. Co-founder of the Transition network, Lodyn and End Ecocide Sverige.
