This video includes previously unreleased footage, from a unique meeting in Stockholm, Sweden, on October 8th, 2014, when Polly Higgins, (Earth’s Lawyer) and Jan O Karlsson (Swedish veteran Social Democratic politician) discussed topics of mutual interest. This clip focuses on Ecocide Law, the legacy of Olof Palme, and how to create windows of opportunity for health and well-being of people and planet.
Olof Palme said in his inspired keynote (at the first United Nation’s conference on the environment, in 1972 in Stockholm):
”In the field of environment there is no individual future, neither for human beings nor for nations. Our future is common. We must share it together. We must shape it together.”
Now Polly, Olof Palme and Jan O Karlsson all are in the light.
Let us continue their mission together.
Produced by End Ecocide Sweden, April 2019.
Voice: Peder Karlsson.
The discussion with Polly Higgins and Jan O Karlsson was filmed by Anders Edenroth.
