Join Together in calling on the UN to recognise the right to a healthy environment

Date: 1st October 2021

We want you to join more than 1000 organisations to urge the UN Human Rights Council to support a resolution that recognises the human right to a healthy, safe, clean, and sustainable environment.

Costa Rica, Maldives, Morocco, Slovenia and Switzerland are calling on the United Nations Human Rights Council to recognise the human right to a healthy environment and we want other members of the Council to support this resolution too! In doing so, it can successfully move to the General Assembly which is responsible for giving formal recognition to new human rights. Formally recognising the right to a healthy environment will strengthen accountability for a more sustainable world!
