  • Polly’s ‘project’ strikes me as prospectively one of the most fruitful paths towards ‘restoring the balance’ of humanity’s off kilter relationship with the natural world that I’ve heard of. The primary question I have is simply what we ‘mere mortals’ can do to support her work on ‘ecocide’? She indicated that there’s ‘strength in numbers’, but what specifically can we do advance her cause?

  • Polly Higgins is a trail blazer who exemplifies living in the power of her calling. And I am so grateful that calling is in service to all life on Gaia. Polly’s example is both humbling and the greatest of inspiration. How can we not meet her courage and serve however Life/Gaia calls us to be/do/relate/create?

  • Would love to have an encore of this event. Sadly i missed it.
    Hope my wish will come true
