Polly Higgins

Polly stepped out of her career in London as a successful barrister to put her skills into use for just one client – the Earth. Walking away from a hugely lucrative career, Polly took up the mantle as an ecological lawyer to advance the international crime of ecocide. Building on her professional experience in court and her legal rigor, in 2010 she presented to the United Nations her proposal for ecocide to become an international crime (ecosystem destruction caused by corporate and State action), to protect the Earth and communities on the front-line of ecological and climate ecocide (ecosystem loss or damage caused by corporate and State in-action). Her not-for-profit, Ecological Defence Integrity, brings together lawyers, experts and judges internationally to advise on Ecocide law.

Polly is also an award-winning author.
