Rights of Nature Series – A Conversation with Will Falk
Will Falk is Lawyer, Writer and Environmental Activist
In 2017, Will helped to file the 1st-ever American federal lawsuit seeking rights for a major ecosystem–the Colorado River. He currently works with the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF), helping communities pass & defend local rights of nature laws.
Will authored, How Dams Fall, describing his relationship with the Colorado River through his involvement in its rights of nature lawsuit. He has published numerous articles & essays through Earth Island Journal, the Dark Mountain Project, CounterPunch, Whole Terrain, CATALYST Magazine, & the San Diego Free Press, among others.
For our conversation, he will speak about how he came to rights of nature, the work he does with CELDF to help Ohio communities enact rights of nature laws and
how rights of nature can help us transform our relationship to the natural world.
