9-10 Nov. 2017 Conference on Human Rights and the Rights of Nature in Nuremberg and Ottensoos
On 9 November from 2:00 pm – 8:00 pm, leading experts will be presenting information on the goals and the worldwide status quo of political, legal and economic discussions and seeking answers to the question whether and to what extent the cultural change in our society is open not only to the rights of nature on paper, but also to them becoming reality. These expert discussions on “Rights of Nature – Human Rights – Biocracy” will be held at the Kulturbahnhof Ottensoos, about 20 km east of Nuremberg (KULTURBAHNHOF OTTENSOOS, Bahnhofstraße 11, 91242 Ottensoos, Germany, www.kulturbahnhof-ottensoos.de)
On 10 November from 5:00 pm – 9:30 pm, the conference will then be continued in Nuremberg where admission will be open to the public without prior registration and free of charge. The motto for this part of the conference will be “Sustainable Nuremberg – Natural Resources and Rights of Nature” (www.nuernberg.de/internet/umweltreferat). Nuremberg, city of human rights and peace, and biometropolis, will present their path in implementing the sustainability strategy – particularly with regard to nature conservation and land policies.
Christian Felber, well-known activist for common-good economics, and Kora Kristof from the Fundamental Aspects Division of the German Federal Environmental Agency will present their ideas on resource conservation and a sustainable connection with the economics of good life. Following the presentations, a podium discussion is planned.
Location: Altes Rathaus, Rathausplatz 2, Nuremberg
