Life and the resources that make it possible should also be considered as universal rights. Recognising and respecting them would allow life to go further than human presence in the planet. The destruction of environments, exploitation and pollution cause the irreversible loss of biodiversity and risk future life, including human life. Philosophy, anthropology, biology, economy and law experts will take part in the conference. They will offer different visions to observe a unique planet.
