Environment

What is the environment? The definition is really broad, because environment is everything around you. Look around you: what do you see?  People, animals, plants, the earth, all these things together form the environment. This means that it covers a really broad topic: it goes from access to a safe and clean place to play, to the use of plastic bags, to protection against natural disasters such as floods or droughts.

  • Children’s right: None direct, indirectly : art 6, 24, 27, 28,29 UN CRC. Children do not have a direct right to a clean or sustainable environment. Indirectly you can link environment to a couple of children’s rights, such as the right to life, survival and development (art 6), the right to health ( Art 24), the right to education (art 28 and 29) and the right to an adequate standard of living (art 27).  
  • Sustainable Development Goals: SDG 6,7, 11,12,13,14 and 15. There are a lot of SDG’s about the environment, such as clean water and sanitary (SDG 6), Affordable and clean energy (SDG 7), sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11), responsible consumption and production (SDG 12), climate action (SDG 13), life in water and on land (SDG 14 and 15)
