Earth Day 2018: Spring Awakening: A Conversation about the Rights of Nature

Spring Awakening is presented in coordination with the  Center for Civic Engagement’s community partner Homecoming Farm. Homecoming Farm is a not-for-profit organization committed to the understanding that the human and natural world is one community of life.  A sponsored ministry of the Sisters of St. Dominic of Amityville welcoming people of all faith communities, they believe that when we care for the Earth, we care for ourselves, each other and future generations, while creating sustainable communities. This event will be a panel as well as discussion around the intrinsic rights of nature. The philosophy of Thomas Berry will serve as a guide for the talk by looking at the increase in environmental protection and how it’s changing ethics and law.
