The Law

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.”

Why an Ecocide Law?

It makes unwanted harm to human-beings as well as the environment illegal. Ecocide Law is nothing new. It started in the 70ies when Olof Palme announced at the very first conference for the human environment that Ecocide should be illegal.
