Globalization and corporate capitalism are characterized by the paradigm of separation and fragmentation, leading to a one-way extraction from nature and society that seeks only profit and leaves no room for cooperation, while sidelining ethical, cultural, and spiritual values and causing the crisis of Ecocide. Our common survival now demands a unification of ecological actions towards living economies, living democracies and a food and agriculture system that sustain life on earth. Mother Earth’s rights are also human rights, as human rights flow from the Earth which sustains us and gives us life. We need to give back to the Earth through a relationship based on the reciprocity between soil and society, shifting away from linearity, extraction and ecocide, to circularity, cooperation and sharing. This is the practice of Earth Democracy and it is also the practice of an ecological agriculture which maintains the web of life through the recognition of the intrinsic worth of all beings and embraces local communities in all their diversity.
