Air, water, food - these are the sources of life. Without them, we die. And in most nations - more than 180 nations, in fact - citizens are legally entitled to these essential elements of life. But not in Canada or the United States. And that's what Green Rights is all about: the human right to a healthy environment, and Mother Nature's right to be respected and protected.
WINNER: Award of Merit – Impact Docs Awards
“The film Green Rights: The Human Right to a Healthy World, with cogent stories and images, reveals where we and other creatures are now and how we could live more justly and peacefully with all our relations.” – Dr. Ralph C. Martin, University of Guelph
“In a packed audience in Antigonish this movie brought alive the issue of embedding green rights into our national fabric; it signalled the crucial dialogue between Indigenous First Nation and settler communities these rights must be embedded in; it showed how this struggle is being undertaken by countless other contexts around this planet. The movie is important for bringing up all of this, but also for articulating a clear sense of what to act on, and how to get involved in the struggle to ensure our land, our air and our water have rights.” – Dr. Jonathan Langdon, St Francis Xavier University
