Ecocide is the massive damage and destruction of ecosystems - damages that are generalized, severe and systemic.
Founded in 2017, Stop Ecocide is a global campaign to make ecocide an international crime. Their core work is activating and developing global cross-sector support to make ecocide an international crime.
Stop Ecocide collaborates with diplomats, politicians, lawyers, corporate leaders, NGOs, indigenous and faith groups, academics, grassroots campaigns and individuals to this end. Member states which ratify the crime must include it in their own domestic law, creating a uniform rule across jurisdictions.
In this way Earth’s most precious ecosystems can be protected and allowed to recover.
