All attendees will receive a meeting invite



In the modern era, legislation has been skewed away from protecting our commons toward serving private, corporate and bureaucratic interests. But a background principal in property law has an established historical record of protecting the environment. In this seminar, we propose an updated legal framework for the Public Trust Doctrine (PTD). We discuss how PDT could define and carry out the ecological obligations of sovereign government on behalf of its citizens to promote equality and sustainability in their use of natural and other resources.

Session 1

Examines the origins of PTD from Rome, Byzantium, England and other places to the early United States.

July 9, 2021
Session 2
Application to natural resource law

Considers examples of how PTD is applied to air, atmosphere, oceans, beaches, rivers, riverbanks, lakes, wetlands, aquifers, forests, wildlife, soils and other natural resources.

July 16, 2021
Session 3
Nature’s trusteeship

Examines why government must promote the interests of its citizen as beneficiaries and ensure the sustained resource abundance necessary for society’s endurance.

July 23, 2021
Session 4
Prout’s view

Shows how a Trusteeship of small businesses, government utilities and cooperatives can share the control and management of critical natural assets. 

July 30, 2021
Session 5
Public trust as due process

Demonstrates how PTD is already under the umbrella of the U.S. Constitution’s guarantee against arbitrary deprivations of life, liberty and property.

August 6, 2021
Session 6
Modern history

Considers how the Progressive Era (1890s - 1920s) and the New Deal Era (1930s - 1950s) extended the application of PTD in the United States.

August 13, 2021
Session 7
Normalizing the commons

Describes ways of turning the commons (the shared resources in which each stakeholder has an equal interest) into an everyday perspective.

August 20, 2021
Session 8
What can EDA do?

How the PDT framework provides a normative way of thinking and a strong set of legal footholds by which EDA can hold government officials accountable for managing our environment equitably and sustainably.
