Global Call for the UN to Recognize the Right to a Healthy Environment – Letter to the Human Rights Council from civil society organisations

Dear Colleagues
 
Over the last few months, the Birdlife Secretariat has been working closely with a diverse group of civil society humanitarian and conservation organisations to advance our collective ambition for the recognition of the right to a healthy environment.
 
The group has written a letter to be sent to the Human Rights Council calling for the recognition of the human right of all to a safe, clean, healthy and sustainable environment. This will be sent on the 10th September ahead of the next UN Human Rights Council session from  14th  September- 6th October.
 
BirdLife International has signed the letter and will be advocating and communicating the messaging aligned with our 1planet1right campaign. We’ll be promoting this call in the digital space throughout the Human Rights Council, and UN General Assembly and the UN Biodiversity Summit, all taking place this month.
 
If you would also like to sign this letter on behalf of your organisation please find the links here bit.ly/Right2Environment_SignOn and below, which also include full translation of the letter in Spanish, French, Arabic, and Portuguese.  Deadlines are tight for organisational signatures by 8th September.
