“The principle of ecological negotiation : a peaceful response to meet the planetary ecological challenge(s)”
The INNÉ will present its strategy to promote a peaceful ecological transition at a glocal level which means considering local/territorial problematics and its impacts at the planetary level.
Environmental law is a pivotal right within which human beings ask themselves the question of their own position within the planet. Should this law be eco-centered (the human within nature) or anthropo-centered (the law made by and for humans and the environment, nature is outside of it). The legal trajectory of Western law is anthropocentric but in many other cultures, it is ecocentric. How to communicate these two opposing worlds at the time of One Planet, One Health? To respond to this, the juridical principle of ecological negotiation applies in the awareness of a global law, in the awareness of local specificities, of the decompartmentalization of legal thoughts while respecting the cultural trajectories at stake. To answer the challenge that our planet is having and the massive extinction of life (biodiversity and humanity), ecological negotiation proposes a radical change in the way of making both international and local decisions. This is, in our opinion, the only way to work seriously on the balance of the planet. For this, decision-making in ecological negotiation must take place in 3 stages, first 1, by applying a governance model composed of at least 7 angles of view combining local and global, 2 by applying tools and methods of deep dialogue, intercultural, interdisciplinary, international etc and 3, by formalizing a process of validation and monitoring of the founding commitments of this ecological negotiation.
Ecological negotiation questions the place of the State and redistributes decision-making power from the pyramid to the network, it decompartmentalizes local ecological issues to obtain international support, which offers visibility and protects defenders of nature who are often mistreated, it makes it possible to make conscious a decision henceforth taken from a point of view of ethics, law, research, economy, and wisdom, this integrative vision is the only one to make it possible to fully integrate the all beings (human, non-human, past and future) in decision-making and to approach it from the point of view of the link, of the relationship to be restored, created, or co-constructed, of pacification.
