Rights of Nature

The Rights of Nature can be understood as the recognition of the inherent value of all human and non-human elements of the biosphere and the protection of their rights to exist, prosper and evolve, as well as the maintenance of vital and natural cycles in their integrity.  

The Rights of Nature emerge as a new paradigm for Law. They seek to cultivate a harmonious and balanced relationship between human societies and the environment.


Ruptura argues that the recognition and protection of the rights of Nature must be autonomous, that is, independent of damage or violation of other human rights.
