Many constitutions foresee provisions on the environment and/or nature. Yet, the approaches and legal forms in which the environment and nature are mentioned, vary. In my contribution, I will provide an overview of provisions on the environment and nature in selected Latin American and European constitutions and the ECHR's approach. Based on the comparison of the approaches, I will test the hypothesis that the concept of rights of nature could prove to better protect future generations and the climate than the concept of the protection of the environment.
