In the face of climate breakdown, legal discourse is urged to reconsider the relationship between law and nature: What kind of legal imagination is needed for the time of Gaia? Reinstituting nature as the defining category for addressing climate breakdown could prove to be both dangerous and obsolete. The workshop focuses on lateral alternatives to the personification of nature and aims at creating a new ecological imagination of legal techniques. It seeks to develop a tentative lexicon including categories such as species, trans-subjective rights, diffuse interests, ecocide, commons and future generations.
