Speaker information

Polly Higgins, Lawyer and activist

Polly Higgins, international environmental lawyer and activist, is leading a campaign to declare the mass destruction of ecosystems an international crime against peace – alongside genocide and crimes against humanity.

Join us at this Symposium to explore how ecocide could be established as a crime, how it could be prosecuted internationally and nationally within a short timescale, and what the implications for global health may be.

The Symposium will be followed by a tea and coffee reception.
