Can We Endorse Human Rights, Growth, AND Protect Nature?

First come first serve

In this discussion, we will talk about whether human rights and rights of nature are compatible. We will also discuss whether economic growth is still a viable goal in a climate emergency. Does it have to be either one or the other or can we create a society where both humans and nature can thrive? If so, what do strategies for creating this world look like? //INFO: In case of heavy rain, the session takes place at the primary school.
