Jojo Mehta on The Law and Ecocide

Jojo Mehta describes herself as an Earth Activist. She is probably best known for her work campaigning against toxic industrial practices such as fracking and incineration.

She is perhaps less known for what she spends most of her time doing: working with internationally renowned barrister Polly Higgins on the global introduction of Ecocide law, a law to criminalize ecosystem destruction.

Jojo will be outlining this proposition which has the startling capacity to turn the whole planetary ship around, simultaneously preventing dangerous industrial activity and enabling climate justice.
