RIGHTS OF NATURE.
CASE STUDIES FROM SIX CONTINENTS
In our time of ecological crisis, the law may provide some new and much- needed perspective. Worldwide, an increasing number of natural entities – forests, rivers, mountains, even Mother Earth herself – are being recognized as so-called legal persons. In this legal revolution, nature is no longer seen as an object to be used and discarded, but rather as a subject with intrinsic value and, importantly, legally enforceable rights.
The Embassy of the North Sea commissioned Laura Burgers and Jessica den Outer to author this Compendium, which focuses on one or two case-studies per continent. Each case-study offers a sketch of the different ways in which the rights of nature have been recognized, with the authors detailing the context and world view underpinning those rights, as well as their current implementation and enforcement.
Both dr. Laura Burgers and Jessica den Outer are experts on the rights of nature within the UN Network.

ZEELUCHT — A stroll along the North Sea coastline
ZEELUCHT — is a new and exclusive scent artwork, developed by scent artist Frank Bloem, commissioned by the Embassy of the North Sea. Like a brisk stroll along the North Sea coastline, ZEELUCHT is a crisp, refreshing scent of pine, beach grass, algae and dune rose. Made with real North Sea water, the trained nose will also detect hints of horse fig and a delicate breeze of tar in the background. Experience how these scents unfold with every step.
With packaging designed by Corine Datema, ZEELUCHT is the result of Bloem’s 2019 sea air research, for which he collected 40 scents from in and around the North Sea. Read more here..
