Find out more about the relation between Human Rights and Environmental Protection with this two-week online course offered by UNITAR.
In light of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP25) that took place in December 2019, the interdependence between Human Rights and Environmental Protection has never been more relevant.
In this interactive course you will discover how human rights are applied to environmental issues, especially in relation to vulnerable groups, and which constitutions have incorporated a right to a healthy environment.
You will also learn how the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development plays a vital part in environmental protection and what are the recent scientific and legal developments around human rights and environment regimes.
After exploring the basic principles and concepts of human rights and environmental protection, you will have the chance to discuss and learn more about the new developments in the field following the COP25.
This online course will take place from 9 to 22 March 2020 and is open to anyone with an interest in the topics of environment and human rights.
