Earth Law Center and the Global Alliance for the Rights of Nature (GARN) Youth Hub led two sessions on “Youth and the Rights of Nature Movement: shifting the paradigm for all future generations” at the first IUCN Global Youth Summit April 7-9. As a result of the Rights of Nature sessions, a Declaration was drafted.

The aim of the Declaration is to galvanize youth around a common initiative; gain support and visibility of it across the globe, pushing for our policy demands within the IUCN and other forums and institutions and create a social media campaign around our commitments that raise awareness around the Rights of Nature and future generations.

Here are the links to the Declaration. You can download it in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, German, and Hindi.
