Talking

Mock Trial

Become an Earth Advocate

Just by mentioning the word Ecocide at events can spread the message in a big way, people in the audience may not have heard of it before and may come up to you afterwards to ask more, or may go and look at the website when they get home. So even simply asking a question at an event can be helpful.
