☮ Permaculture Malta: http://permaculturemalta.org/ ☮ Ecocide Law: http://eradicatingecocide.com/ A conscious conversation between lawyer for the earth Polly Higgins and Malta's Permaculture ambassador Peppi Gauci WHAT IS ECOCIDE? Ecocide is the extensive damage to, destruction of or loss of ecosystem(s) of a given territory, whether by human agency or by other causes, to such an extent that peaceful enjoyment by the inhabitants of that territory has been or will be severely diminished. In 2010, the proposal to amend the Rome Statute to include an international crime of Ecocide was submitted by Polly Higgins into the International Law Commission (ILC). The ILC is the UN body ‘mandated to promote the progressive development of international law and its codification’. The submission was published as Chapters 5 and 6 in her first book, Eradicating Ecocide. ☮ Ecocide Law: http://eradicatingecocide.com/ ☮ Permaculture Malta: http://permaculturemalta.org/ ☮ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/permaculturemalta ☮ Twitter: https://twitter.com/permamalta
