|Dear Advocates for a Right to Healthy Environment, We are overjoyed to say that the Human Rights Council has adopted the resolution recognizing our right to a healthy environment!|
This recognition means more accountability from governments to ensure we live in a world with a safe and stable climate, a toxic-free environment, with clean air, access to safe water and adequate sanitation, healthy and sustainably produced food and thriving biodiversity and ecosystems. This is an incredible achievement made possible by your endless support. Thank you for your tireless efforts- from gathering over 1,350 endorsements from 75 countries for our Global Call to sharing over 4,300 online messages calling for a #HealthyEnvironmentForAll. We invite you to join us in celebration for this significant moment! Feel free to use sample social media copy and graphics.
#1 WONDERFUL NEWS! The @UN_HRC just adopted the resolution to recognize the right to a #Healthy EnvironmentForAll! This signals what we hope will be the beginning of a new era in rights-based environmental policy.
#2 The time has come…after decades of demands from civil society & Indigenous Peoples organizations, the @UN_HRC approved the resolution to recognize the right to a healthy & sustainable environment! We thank for taking the lead to ensure a #HealthyEnvironmentForAll.
🎉🎉🎉 Today the @UN_HRC has universally recognized the right to a #HealthyEnvironmentForAll! Champions of this movement – from children, business, Indigenous People, human rights institutions and civil society organizations, UN and more – share why this step is so significant! As we honor this major milestone, we will soon begin working towards strengthening the recognition of the right to a healthy environment, including it’s endorsement in the General Assembly. Stay tuned!
