In 2016, my colleagues and I at The Green Interview completed a four-year project on environmental rights – on the human right to a healthy environment, which is recognized in more than 180 nations, but not in Canada or the US. The result of the project was an impressive array of media productions based on a significant body of original knowledge.

The films and most of the interviews are available in many universities and libraries through our distribution partners Films Media Group (Films on Demand), Kanopy Streaming, Gale Cengage Learning, and McIntyre Media. All of them are accessible at, our subscription web site, where they can be streamed in video, or downloaded as audio or transcript. The 45-minute CBC-TV special Defenders of the Dawn: Green Rights in the Maritimes can also be streamed here:

The book Warrior Lawyers: From Manila to Manhattan, Attorneys for the Earth is available online at, as is a DVD of the feature documentary Green Rights: The Human Right to a Healthy World. The book is also available through online sources such as Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Any bookstore or library should be able to obtain it through Ingram Distribution.

I have toured the feature documentary – which won a number of awards — from coast to coast, and in 2019 I taught a course at Cape Breton University called Green Rights: The Human Right to a Healthy World, which was based on the film, the interviews and the book.

It was a highly innovative course, being team-taught with Dr. Stepan Wood, professor of law at the University of British Columbia, using classrooms in Sydney and Vancouver linked electronically. The course was also available simultaneously as two on-line non-credit courses, and many non-credit students participated remotely. To learn more about how this worked, click here. To inquire about future offerings of the course, please write me at
