Join the Global Alliance for the Rights of Nature and Earth Jurisprudence Practitioners from Kenya, Zimbabwe and Uganda for a webinar exploring how African communities are reviving their traditional ecological knowledge and defending the waters of life across the continent.  REGISTER HERE 

Dennis Tabaro (African Institute of Culture and Ecology, Uganda) will delve into the Rights of Nature clause in Uganda’s National Environment Act and the journey of Bagungu clans to gain recognition as the traditional custodians of Itaka lya Mwitanzigye (Lake Albert).

Simon Mitambo (Society for Alternative Learning and Transformation, Kenya) will share how local schoolchildren are working with elders to revitalise traditional practices and customary laws, and to restore the Kithino River in Tharaka Ntithi, Kenya.

Method Gundidza (Earthlore Foundation, South Africa/Zimbabwe) will discuss the how the elders and youth of his home community, Bikita, are re-weaving the basket of their ecological knowledge and reviving 'lost' seed varieties that boost resilience to the 'water extremes' of drought and flood resulting from climate breakdown.

Method, Dennis and Simon are all Earth Jurisprudence Practitioners - graduates of The Gaia Foundation's UN-recognised 'Trainings for Transformation'. Find out more here.  The webinar is hosted by the Global Alliance for the Rights of Nature as part of the Listen as the Earth Speaks series. Attendance is FREE, but you must register!
