Interview with David Boyd, a Canadian ecological lawyer and leading environmental expert who is a forceful advocate for the entrenchment of environmental rights in national legal systems. Boyd is the author of five books and his two most recent books demonstrate how Canada and other nations can use constitutional and environmental law to help the environment and improve people's lives. For example, court decisions and environmental laws in Argentina, Brazil, India, the Philippines, Norway, Sweden, and Finland prove that constitutional protections lead to concrete changes such as cleaner air, safer drinking water and less pollution. Boyd argues that enshrining the right to a healthy environment in national constitutions can dramatically transform countries' environmental laws and policies and improve their practices of protecting the environment. Yet a handful of nations, including Canada and the U.S., have no such constitutional protections. Boyd aims to change that.
