Increasingly, laws that recognize the inherent rights of nature and acknowledge that ecosystems have the right to exist, persist, maintain and regenerate their vital cycles are being adopted worldwide. The work of Vanessa Hasson de Oliveira has been instrumental in passing legislation on the rights of nature in Brazil, including, in particular, the proposal for the recognition of the rights of nature in the constitution of the city of São Paulo. Her commitment in support of the well-being of the Earth, recognizing the need for ethical approaches that honor the intrinsic value of nature, puts her at the forefront of this growing legal movement at the national and international levels. Her work draws inspiration from the wisdom of indigenous peoples, who regard the Earth as a relative not a resource.
