We at CELDF want to recognize and celebrate the 14-year anniversary of this historic date when the country of Ecuador codified Rights of Pachamama into their national Constitution. During that time, they have led the way to show the rest of the world what it looks like when a River, a Cloud Forest, and another animal species file a lawsuit claiming their rights have been violated….And wins!

Thank you to the people and organizations who worked to make this real back in 2008 and continue to push the movement for Rights of Nature forward around the globe. We are grateful that we were able to play a part of this momentous event and movement then and now.
