The General Assembly declared April 22nd as International Mother Earth Day[1] in recognition of how Mother Earth reflects the interdependence that exists among human beings, other living species and the planet we all inhabit.

This year Stephen Hockman QC and Dr Frank Biermann will be speaking on how to achieve the Green Economy objective as described in 'The Future We Want' outcome document that was agreed at the UN Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro in 2012.

Stephen Hockman QC is currently the Honorary President of UNA London & Southeast region. He will be talking about the need for an International Court for the Environment. Dr Frank Biermann will be speaking on other necessary reforms (such as the need for a UN environment organisation) based on his book, Earth Governance, published in October 2014.
