ELGA provides a forum and platform for diverse groups to work together and amplify their voices to transform our current human-centered, growth-focused legal paradigm, to an Earth-centered, ‘ecological law and governance’ paradigm to better protect the foundations of life. ELGA’s vision is a just, flourishing world where state and global governance systems better protect the foundations of life.
