Rights of Nature and a Human Right to a Clean Environment; Ireland being the next country to recognize them!

The “Green Island” has good news, at least the discussion going on in Ireland are promising.

If the planned referendum is successful then Ireland would be the first European country to recognise in its constitution that ecosystems, like people and businesses, have legal rights. 

The start of this possible amendment of the Irish constitution has it´s roots as far as 2019, when Ireland declared a national biodiversity emergency. 

Hopefully Ireland will not be the only country going in this direction, other countries such as Aruba, Panama, Bolivia, Uganda, New Zealand, Spain and Ecuador have already taken the right steps in the past.

More than human—all the ecosystems, the landscapes, the rivers, trees and mountains whose daily labor make our lives possible, make our rights meaningful, our economies possible.
