Ecocide is the extensive damage to, destruction of or loss of ecosystem(s) of a given territory, whether by human agency or by other causes, to such an extent that peaceful enjoyment by the inhabitants of that territory has been or will be severely diminished.

"We invite the European Commission to adopt legislation to prohibit, prevent and pre-empt Ecocide, the extensive damage to, destruction of or loss of ecosystems." [more below]
With a big early push this could become the first European Citizens Initiative to get 1,000,000 legitimate signatories (it's not just a petition, it's something more). It will then have to be considered for tabling by the European Commission and the organisers will have a chance to present their cause in a public hearing in the European Parliament.
It also gets the concept of Ecocide out further into common parlance.
1. Criminalise Ecocide and ensure that natural and legal persons can be held responsible for committing Ecocide according to the principle of superior responsibility.
2. Prohibit and prevent any Ecocide on European territories or maritime territories falling under EU legislation, as well as acts outside the EU committed by EU registered legal persons or EU nationals.
3. Provide for a period of transition to facilitate a sustainable economy.
