High-level Conference on Environmental Protection and Human Rights

The Conference of INGOs contributed to the high-level Conference on Environmental Protection and Human Rights held on 27 February  2020 under the aegis of the Georgian Chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe.

The President, Anna Rurka, presented the work carried out during 10 years by the Conference of INGOs, largely supported by the activities of the Democracy, Social Cohesion and Global Challenges Committee. The Conference of INGOs has always supported the development of a legal framework relating to the environment and it invites the future chairmanships of the Committee of Ministers to place the subject of the environment as one of the priorities. The right to a healthy environment, to climate justice and social justice and ensuring an environment conducive to the activities of environmentalists and environmental NGOs are major democratic challenges for the future.
