Lawyer for the Earth and author of award-winning Eradicating Ecocide. After spending time as a barrister in court, representing corporate clients, Polly had an insight; the Earth is in need of a good lawyer. So she decided to become a Voice for the Earth and put her unique skills to best use to create a new law to put in place an overriding duty of case for people and planet. The law is called Ecocide.

My TED story
This is a love story. A love story between you and me. You are the Earth and I am, well, me. Like most love stories, there's a beginning, middle and an end. Ours has only just begun, but I promise you this, it is the biggest love story of our times. This is one story that each and every one of us has a part in - and my story is also yours.
I have just discovered that I love the world that I live in, and I believe that we are entering an era where we come from a place of love, not war. That's why I am stepping up onto the platform and over the edge into space - because when I do that I enter into a place of magic. This is my invitation to you to do the same.
My quest is to end the era of Ecocide. I give my life to the Earth - I know that what unites us all is our love for life.
