Earth Talk Video: I Dare You To Be Great - Polly Higgins

Stop for a minute and ask yourself ‘Do I dare to be great?’ It’s a big question — it’s also an invitation to enter into an adventure with life. A life with a new set of rules. Rules that you choose to create.

Over the past year Polly Higgins has opened herself up to daring herself to be great, delving into a deeper personal enquiry. For her, daring to be great is to be in service to something greater than the self. In this video, Polly shares some insights and stories of where her adventure is taking her.

Polly Higgins has called for Ecocide to be made and international crime and to create a legal duty of care. She is also the author of two books, the award-winning Eradicating Ecocide and Earth is our Business. She speaks as an advocate of Earth law, earth centred governance, leadership and daring to be great on many platforms across the world.

Polly Higgins, Lawyer for the Earth, international lawyer, barrister and award-winning author, proposed to the United Nations in 2010 that Ecocide be the 5th Crime Against Peace. Since then, Polly has been invited into governments across the world to advise on the law. She has been voted one of the World’s Top 10 Visionary Thinkers by the Ecologist and named The Planet’s Lawyer by the 2010 Change Awards. She was the Overall Champion of the 2012 People and Environment Awards and was chosen to deliver the 2012 Rachel Carson Memorial Lecture . See and .
