Season 2, Ep. 18

Pella Thiel,

Founder of End Ecocide Sweden and Rights of Nature Sweden

PELLA THIEL WAS APPOINTED SWEDISH ENVIRONMENTAL HERO OF THE YEAR 2019


Should Nature have rights? Today a corporation can have standing to be represented in court whilst animals or ecosystems can’t. President Macron said he would support the creation of a crime of Ecocide in international discussions and so did the Belgian govenment, the Danish parliament and the Swedish labor party. Even the Financial Times raised the question in an article on Oct 25!


An idea whose time has come it seems!


Pella is co-founder of End Ecocide Sweden and Rights of Nature Sweden and was appointed the Environmental Hero of the Year in 2019. Discover what it would change concretely if Ecocide was recognised as an international crime, and meet a beautiful person, who embodies engagement with softness and sparkle.
