This year, 2020 the Stop Ecocide Foundation are bringing together an expert panel of international lawyers advised by top climate and environmental scientists which will include Valerie Cabanes (End Ecocide on Earth). The purpose of this panel is to develop an up-to-date, clear and legally robust definition of ecocide for review and potential proposal by states they are working with.
Back in 2016 as part of our work towards the inclusion of ecocide crime within international law, End Ecocide on Earth convened a group of legal experts. This group drew up a legal document providing the text for an amendment to the Rome Statute to include the crime of Ecocide. We are involved in lobbying state representatives to propose and support our Ecocide amendments with the view to working towards an International Criminal Court Review Conference.
For more information about the amendment and its interpretation read our Amicus document:
If you have any high level contacts in your country (ministry / parliament / prime ministers office …) please do not hesitate and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a meeting where we can discuss potential lobbying activities.
