We warmly invite you to the launch of our Call to Action and Advocacy Manifesto: A right to a healthy environment that works.
Wednesday 8 December 1 – 1:45pm (online, free)
Now more than ever we need a human right to a healthy environment to tackle the climate and nature emergencies.
About this event
The Scottish Government has committed to including a human right to a healthy environment in a new Human Rights (Scotland) Bill. Our job now is to make sure that it works in practice. This means our rights need to be enforceable in a court of law.
Hear about the legal reforms that are needed and support the launch of our online petition.
Mhairi Snowden, Human Rights Consortium Scotland and Clare Symonds, Planning Democracy.
• Welcome – Dr Shivali Fifield, ERCS Chief Officer
• Why environmental rights matter for all human rights – Mhairi Snowden, Human Rights Consortium Scotland Director
• Why it’s so hard for us to use the law to protect the environment and our health – Clare Symonds, ERCS Trustee and Director of Planning Democracy
