Polly Higgins is a pioneer; since stepping down from her legal practice as a court advocate, she devotes her time to one client – the Earth

Her work is groundbreaking: internationally, she is the lead advocate for and expert on ecocide crime, award-winning author of Eradicating Ecocide, creator of the first ever non-commercial global trust fund for Earth Protectors, generator of change-making Earth protecting laws and a driving force behind the expansion of a ‘rights based’ narrative towards a ‘duties and responsibilities’ based governance model.

She is the co-founder of Ecological Defence Integrity, based in Stroud (UK), where her team run all core operations. Non-profit Ecological Defence Integrity was established in response to the recognition that new law for the Earth requires a far wider base of support than most governments will provide. Ecological Defence Integrity administers Mission Lifeforce – an unprecedented global funding platform created to fund ecocide law.

Polly will be joining the Saturday night "Earth Activists Defining the Bee Narrative" session by Skype
