On Thursday 6 November, 7:30 pm, James Dyke (University of Southampton) and others will be hosting Polly Higgins at the Turner Sims concert venue at the University of Southampton.
- ec•o•cide [noun] is the extensive damage to, destruction of or loss of ecosystem(s) of a given territory, whether by human agency or by other causes, to such an extent that peaceful enjoyment by the inhabitants of that territory has been or will be severely diminished.
Polly has become renowned for spearheading the campaign to bring a Law of Ecocide as the 5th crime against humanity, peace and ultimately nature, to stand alongside war crimes and genocide. Polly will give a talk that, after a short break with some complimentary refreshments, will be followed by what I’m sure will be a lively panel discussion.
Tickets can be obtained from the Turner Sims website here.
Come and listen to a legend of our times and ask questions to a panel of esteemed guests, including Keith Taylor MEP.
