Speak for Nature

Interdisciplinary Approaches on Ecological Justice

Speak4Nature is a project funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Staff exchange action of the European Commission for the years 2023-2027 with the specific object of transferring both theoretical and empirical knowledge related to the techniques that assert the voice of non-human nature in social and legal instances. To accomplish this task, Speak4Nature finances the intersectoral and international mobility of the researchers within the institutions of the consortium.

Through innovative approaches, cutting-edge technology, and citizen science initiatives, Speak4Nature seeks to empower individuals and communities to actively participate in wildlife conservation and habitat restoration efforts. By combining traditional conservation practices with digital solutions, the project aims to create a lasting impact on biodiversity conservation. Speak4Nature will develop new socio-legal instruments and methodologies to provide a theoretical and operational basis in social and environmental sciences to ensure non-human nature participation in legal instances.

By defining why and how different social sciences extend moral consideration to non-human nature, the project will conceptualize Ecological Justice from a multidisciplinary, intersectoral and international perspective. Project work will ultimately lead to ensuring interhuman, interspecies and intergenerational fairness. Through interdisciplinary and intersectoral secondments and knowledge transfer mechanisms, Speak4Nature will increase the skills of the involved staff to foster the study, exchange and dissemination of knowledge on issues related to the ecology of law, contributing to the improvement of Ecological Justice standards and policies.
