Make Ecocide a crime!

Russian troops have killed thousands and displaced millions. They are also destroying Ukraine’s environment, toxifying its soil, and burning its forests and fields. 600 species of animals and 880 species of plants are now under threat.

Altogether, the damage to the environment amounts to over 50 billion dollars. But ecocide, the act of severely destroying the environment, is not considered an international crime.

But there is hope: the European Union is about to decide on making the mass destruction of its nature illegal. If they act, it could set an example for the world to follow — and a campaign supported by 1 million of us would show that people everywhere are against the destruction of Mother Earth.

Sign now demanding the criminalisation of ecocide and we’ll deliver our voices straight to key decision makers.
