No group is more vulnerable to environmental harm than children and young people. And no group will be more affected by the unravelling of core elements of the natural environment on which all life depends.
It's time to bring environmental activist youth leaders, adults and Elders together for an interactive and generative dialogue on their concerns, solutions and recommendations on children’s rights and the environment.
To start these conversations, the David Suzuki Foundation (DSF), the International Institute for Child Rights and Development (IICRD) and the Children’s Environmental Rights Initiative (CERI) are partnering to host a virtual child, youth and intergenerational consultation on children’s right to a healthy environment for the North American region- as part of a series of regional consultations with children and young people across the world.
Learn more about the consultations in this concept note and how you can get support this virtual gathering, taking place in Spring 2021.
