Stop Ecocide Foundation
The Stop Ecocide campaign was founded in 2017 by visionary UK lawyer the late Polly Higgins and environmental activist Jojo Mehta. Their mission is to support the establishment of ecocide as an international crime, in order to forbid and prevent further devastation to life on Earth. We are the only global campaign with this exclusive focus.
Their NGO, the Stop Ecocide Foundation is based in the Netherlands and has charitable (ANBI) status.
Their international team is working with legal researchers, international criminal lawyers and small nation states interested in advancing an international crime of ecocide. Two sovereign states (Vanuatu and the Maldives) have officially called for consideration of such a crime.
This is advocacy work at the highest level and includes providing legal, strategic and practical assistance to interested states. For the procedure to establish the crime, see Making Ecocide a CrimeSee more
