Building a Flourishing Future | Workshop
In July 2022, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution that declared access to a clean, healthy, and sustainable environment a universal human right. This resolution recognizes the effects of climate change, and the negative implications that climate change has on the enjoyment of human rights.
While the passing of the resolution is monumental, it is important that individual nation-states take action to implement it, as people are losing their homes and access to food, causing climate-forced displacement. Disasters in 2021 contributed to more than 60% of the new internal displacements worldwide.
This panel will inform participants of the UNGA Resolution on Human Right to Clean, Healthy, and Sustainable Environment and explore how to leverage this resolution to create societal change. Panelists will reflect on the nexus of climate change and human rights, and what lies ahead.
