Petition for the Right to a Healthy Natural Environment

Led by Martin Harper, the RSPB's Global Conservation Director, we request your support in BirdLife International's petition for the UN to include the right to a healthy natural environment in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).

Countless research papers are backing up common knowledge that access to a vibrant natural world benefits us mentally and physically. It provides a home for a vast array of species and critically provides an effective natural way to mitigate climate change.

Please lend your support by signing the petition here:

We currently have over 13,000 signatures, but are trying to reach 20,000!
