Info about projection
Western views and the legal system tend to view nature as property, a commodity whose only value is to provide for human needs. But for millennia indigenous communities have viewed themselves as part of nature. As pressures on the environment mount, people are turning to a new legal strategy known as The Rights of Nature, based on indigenous concepts. This film takes viewers on a journey to Ecuador, New Zealand, and the United States. Learn how constitutional reforms helped recognize nature as a legal entity.
