Australian Earth Laws Alliance (AELA)

Earth Laws Asia Pacific: Earth, Sea, Fire, Spirit Online Conference

Wednesday 14 Oct
Friday 16 Oct




About this event

The escalating impacts of climate change are being felt around the Asia Pacific region. As Australian communities recover and rebuild from a summer of horrific bushfires, other communities are coping with sea level rise, flooding, forced transition of cities and communities to safe zones, increasing environmental deterioration and biodiversity loss. With the outbreak of COVID-19, environmental protection efforts have changed dramatically, and there is much to learn and share from our each other.

This conference invites participants to share research and project updates, and work together to progress collaborative projects. This year’s conference will bring together First Nations peoples, legal experts and legal practitioners from around the Asia Pacific region (in person and via Zoom). It will also bring ocean rights and law of the sea experts together with Earth laws experts focused on terrestrial land and biodiversity management.
