Environmental Human Rights – From Nicaragua to NI

Organisation Sustainability, Equality and Climate Action at Queens University Belfast
Date 14th March 2022 07:00 PM (GMT)

Companies often employ an economic model which prioritises profit over human rights and the environment. This corporate policy, which often operates with impunity, has significantly advanced the climate crisis, impacted local communities across the globe and contributed to the persecution of those who stand up for environmental rights.

Environmental human rights defenders work to protect the environment against this exploitation and defend the rights of their communities.

This event, hosted by the Centre for Sustainability, Equality and Climate Action at QUB (SECA) will explore human and environmental rights in Nicaragua, NI and around the world and look at what it means to stand up against such unsustainable exploitation.
