Ask the Expert: What do Human Rights have to do with the Climate Crisis?

Have you ever wondered if human rights are linked to the climate crisis? ​

They are! In fact, so many of our human rights, such as the right to life, health, food, and an adequate standard of living, are adversely affected by climate change. ​

The most obvious example is extreme weather-related events such as storms, floods and wildfires that continue to devastate people and the planet, with human rights continuing to be violated. ​

But, as Louise explains in her session, there are many other less visible ways that climate change threatens lives.

Louise Nicholls, a long term Future Food Movement supporter, has just returned from the Maldives, where she has seen first hand the challenges facing small fisheries in accessing their fishing rights – Louise’s huddle gives our Ally Members the chance to hear directly from an expert and ask questions on how human rights are an opportunity for transformative change for business and people’s lives.​
