Alexandra Pimor: Nature governance, Nature on the Board | Benjamin Freud, Ph.D.

June 16, 2023

In this episode, I speak with Alexandra Pimor. Alexandra leads on the Nature On The Board project, a pioneering endeavour to expand the scope of Rights of Nature across legal systems, corporate boards, and any decision-making body to foster a global Nature/Earth-based governance praxis. A published scholar with over 20 yearsā€™ experience in pedagogical engineering, Ally started her career as a senior law lecturer in the UK. We discuss:

šŸ„„ Nature governance as a way to bring back nature consciousness in our decision-making, our ways of doing things, our lives as a collective;

šŸ„„ How understanding that we are relational, that we are Nature, would lead us to make different decisions and connect in ways that lead to thriving;

šŸ„„ How Nature governance is the cultivation of happiness.
