Event Description

“Living within our ecological limits: law and governance to nurture the Earth community”

One of the key tenets of Earth Jurisprudence is that human societies must live within their ecological limits.  But with our political and economic systems focused on growth, and humanity now using the equivalent of 1.5 Earths to meet our insatiable consumer demands – how do we reign in humanity’s use of the Earth and create governance systems that nurture, rather than destroy, the natural world?

In September 2013 the Australian Earth Laws Alliance will host a multi-disciplinary conference aimed at exploring key questions for living within our ecological limits: 

  • How do we know our ecological limits?
  • What legal and governance mechanisms can help us live within our limits?
  • How do we change our current economic, political and legal systems to create human societies that live in a harmonious relationship with the Earth community?

The conference will offer speakers and delegates an opportunity to engage with a range of scientific, economic, political, ethical and legal challenges posed by the concept of humanity living within its ecological limits.  In addition to traditional academic papers and presentations, the conference will offer a range of round tables and working group discussions for delegates to explore issues of interest.  The conference will also offer exciting ‘side events’ stimulated by multi-disciplinary partnerships, including a Wild Law Art Exhibition at a Southbank gallery, hosted by the Griffith University Queensland College of Art.

Venue: The 2013 Wild Law conference is being held in the Ian Hangar Recital Hall, Queensland Conservatorium, Southbank, Brisbane (Australia).  Southbank is Brisbane’s major cultural precinct, featuring the performing arts centre, several major art galleries, gardens and parklands and a range of restaurants and cafes, all built along the Brisbane River.
