Polly Higgins and the Journey of Ecocide

Polly Higgins, a lawyer campaigning for the international recognition of Ecocide as the 5th Crime Against Peace, shares how her love for the Earth brought her on a journey of radical discovery and bold actions leading her to halt her career as a barrister to pursue changes in the law that will end the global Era of Ecocide.

Polly is the author of the award-winning Eradicating Ecocide: laws and governance to prevent the destruction of our planet. She has been voted one of the "World's Top 10 Visionary Thinkers" by the Ecologist and named "the Planet's lawyer" by the 2010 Change Awards.
