(June 1, 2013) — United Natures has released a new independent documentary featuring some of the world’s foremost environmental activists and philosophers who have gathered together to draw attention to the Universal Declaration of the Rights of Mother Earth.
The Universal Declaration was first placed into effect by Bolivia and presented to the United Nations for recognition and, hopefully, adoption by the world body and its member nations.
United Natures features environmental lawyers Cormac Cullinan (wild law), Polly Higgins (ecocide), Dr Alessandro Pelizzon (earth rights), Linda Sheehan (earth laws) and Prof. Judith Koons (earth jurisprudence) along with other eco-luminaries such as Dr. Vandana Shiva, David Holmgren (permaculture) Dr. Helen Caldicott, Starhawk, Rosa Maria Ruiz, Polly Higgins, Father Bob Maguire, John Seed and others speaking on the issues of on earth jurisprudence, permaculture and environmental philosophy.
“The outer environment is a reflection of our inner environments” says Australian author/activist John Seed.
Permaculture is considered to be Australia’s greatest intellectual export so it is only appropriate that David Holmgren (the co-originator of the permaclture movement), his partner Su Dennett and their son, Oliver, would add their voices to enhance the homemade grassroots origins of the documentary.
It is hoped that the positivity of the permaculture philosophy will resonate with the millions of people around the would who, without a central organization, share a common united global vision of sustainability, harmony, care for the planet and the evolution of a new, indigenous future â€“ not only as earthlings, but as universlings!
As the director, Peter Downey has written:
Until we recognize the Earth and Her ecosystems as a living homeostatic entity and afford Her the same rights we bestow a cat, dog, intangible God or artificial person we call a corporation, we have no hope of balancing the damage over creation we so lawfully inflict upon Her.
Until we have evolved enough to appreciate the rights of the Earth and our role as humans within nature, we will never appreciate the rights of, and every human’s equal place within, the ecosystem of our civilization.
A new wisdom, philosophy, spirituality and world indigenous culture will evolve from unsustainable modernity. Like the reclamation of forest over ancient ruins our humanity will flower into a new realization of what is considered smart, intelligent and modern.
