More than 175 countries have laws recognizing the right to a healthy environment; Canada does not.
Silver Donald Cameron is trying to change that. The writer, producer and educator launched the multimedia Green Rights Project to explain the importance of rights to clean water, air and food, and to present the stories of people seeking recognition of those rights.
Silver Donald Cameron will be in Ottawa on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2016 to show the film Green Rights: The Human Right to a Healthy World, and talk about his book, Warrior Lawyers, which explores environmental rights and struggles around the world to have them recognized, drawing on the perspectives of environmental lawyers involved.
The event is at 8 p.m. at the Pearson Room, Lord Elgin Hotel. (Thanks to planetfriendly.net for the information and links to more about the Green Rights Project.)
