Owned by Nature: A conversation on giving Earth Equity with Reggie Luedtke

200M+ corporations worldwide have power. Can the legal personhood of NATURE provide protection from humans and corporations? S01E03 Better Worlds Podcast hosted by Julian Guderley, creator of GreenPlanet BluePlanet Podcast

Can the legal personhood of NATURE provide protection from humans and corporations?

Hosted by Julian Guderley with guest Reggie Luedtke, Edmund Hillary Global Impact

Legal personhood has granted 200M+ corporations worldwide incredible power. How might the same be done for Nature? In this episode, Reggie Luedtke, Edmund Hillary Global Impact Fellow of New Zealand, speaks with host Julian Guderley, creator of the BluePlanet-GreenPlanet podcast. Reggie shares details and his journey regarding the legal personhood of a river and a mountain. How collaboration to protect nature from the the actions of humans and other legal persons such as corporations, suddenly becomes possible. How might purpose driven organizations become owned by nature and thereby avoid pressures from shareholder interests to corrupt and transform their success into the exploitation of people and the earth.

Reggie is an Edmund Hillary Global Impact Fellow in New Zealand, where he is working with Maori leaders in the movement to grant legal personhood for the more-than-human world. He is also part of a collective stewarding data for the benefit of bioregions and giving a voice for nature on company boards. Before working on Earth Equity, Reggie was the co-founder and CEO of a HealthTech startup called BlueTree Network, which grew to 450 employees before it was acquired in 2019.
