The Global Alliance for the Rights of Nature was founded in 2010 by global leaders who helped power the Universal Declaration of the Rights of Mother Earth at the People’s Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth in Cochabamba, Bolivia. Later that year in Ecuador, these leaders established an Alliance that could power the Rights of Nature movement to realign humankind’s relationship with nature and heal the planet. The Global Alliance for the Rights of Nature (GARN) founders and members believe that in order to ensure an environmentally sustainable future, humans must reorient themselves from an exploitative and ultimately self-destructive relationship with nature to one that honours the deep interrelation of all life and contributes to the health and integrity of the natural environment. An essential step in achieving this is to create a system of jurisprudence that sees and treats nature as a fundamental, rights-bearing entity and not as mere property to be exploited at will. GARN’s mission is to serve as a global network for connecting and fostering relationships, exchanging knowledge, building an intersectional movement, and nurturing collaboration to advance the understanding and implementation of the Rights of Nature. The Youth Hub is a global network by youth and for youth (-35 years old) all over the world, with the objective to empower young people to become ambassadors of the Rights of Nature movement, generate positive impact, and advocate successfully on behalf of the Rights of Nature and future generations. Most recently the Youth Hub worked alongside Earth Law Center to draft the Youth Declaration on the Rights of Nature and Future Generations.
