Ecocide debate

Wednesday 13 November 2019
4pm - 5pm

Should ecocide be an international crime given the impending cost to the environment due to climate change? Our president, DIlara will be debating for ecocide to be an international crime.

Ecocide is a human activity that violates the principles of environmental justice (something you hear Extinction Rebellion calling for ) such as causing extensive damage or destroying ecosystems or harming the health and well-being of a species(including humans).

It has not yet been accepted as an international crime by the UN.

Proposition: Amnesty + Criminology 

Opposition: Bar Society + Law society
