    Polly Higgins is a pioneer; since stepping down from her legal practice as a court advocate, she devotes her time to one client – the Earth.

    Her work is groundbreaking: internationally, she is the lead advocate for and expert on ecocide crime, award-winning author of Eradicating Ecocide, creator of the first ever non-commercial global trust fund for Earth Protectors, generator of change-making Earth protecting laws and a driving force behind the expansion of a ‘rights based’ narrative towards a ‘duties and responsibilities’ based governance model.

    She is the co-founder of Ecological Defence Integrity, based in Stroud (UK), where her team run all core operations, established in response to the recognition that new law for the Earth requires a far wider base of support than most governments will provide. Ecological Defence Integrity administers Mission Lifeforce – an unprecedented global funding platform created to fund ecocide law.

    At the UK level, Polly works with activists who seek to protect their communities and land from serious harm, and increasingly are facing criminal charges. Polly and team provide free assistance and court document preparation to these frontline protectors who, like the Quakers before them, wish to give testimony in court on point of conscience.

    At KIN, she’ll be talking to Ed Gillespie, Director at Greenpeace and Co-Founder of Environmental Communications Agency Futerra, about aligning the force of law with the force of life, to protect our planet.
