Information about the Conference in Cochabamba  can be found at http://www.RightsofMotherEarth.com.

In response to the lack of significant commitments by world leaders at the 2009 UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen,  President Evo Morales of Bolivia has called for the First People’s World Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of  Mother Nature.  A key objective of the  conference is to develop a Declaration of Rights for Mother Earth.   Delegates Robin Milam and Michael Stone will be covering this historic conference in Cochabamba, Bolivia in April for KVMR 89.5 FM radio. 

This historic Conference is billed as a peoples conference.  Sixteen key working groups will deliberate on a broad spectrum of topics  and questions related to climate change.  Questions addressed will include: “How can we build a world in which harmony is reestablished between humans and nature for the well-being of all humanity and our Mother Earth?  One objective is to encourage and promote Indigenous visions, practices, and relationships of harmony with nature, and to share proposals regarding climate change and the defense of Mother Earth.  What are the Rights of the Mother Earth? What can we do to promote and defend them at national, regional and international levels?” 

Scientists, academics, lawyers, governments, Indigenous leaders and leaders of social movements are convening to take a more grass roots approach to developing  proposals and strategies to defend life from Climate Change.  The conference is in preparation for  the next UN Conference on Climate Change in Mexico.

Michael Stone points out that “This is Blessed Unrest, the planet’s immune system in action.” As a delegate in Cochabamba, Robin Milam says “My  intention is to gather the stories, especially the women, and give voice to their wisdom through the worldwide web.”  To this end we are leading a small delegation of conscious journalist and photographers to participate in and document this momentous event.

Robin Milam is a social entrepreneur and internet marketing consultant with WSI Marketing.  Michael Stone is host of KVMR’s Conversations: Possibilities and Perspectives on Local and Global Issues. His show focuses on Environmental Restoration, Spiritual Fulfillment and Social Justice Issues.
