The protection and preservation of the environment is one of the most important issues facing humankind today. The centrality of this issue was demonstrated when the Nobel Peace Prize for 2007 was awarded to AL Gore and the Inter Governmental Panel on Climate Change for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change. There is an international movement today, cutting across the north-south divide, to protect and preserve the environment. International law forms a major part of this development. Within this body of international law, dealing with protection of the environment, there exists a current of thought which argues that right to a clean or healthy or satisfactory or good environment has attained the status of a human right. The logical corollary follows that human rights mechanism can be used to prevent the degradation of the environment.
The human right to environment can be understood in two contexts: either as an independent right existing separately or as a part of other existing human rights. Some of the major international instruments like the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights preceded the groundswell of concern for the environment that has sprang up in the late sixties. However there does exist international instruments which talk of the human right to environment.
The different concerns why we should preserve the environment:
1) A clean environment is essential for healthy living
2) The overall temperature of Earth’s atmosphere is increasing
3) Your great-great & great-great-great grandchildren will appreciate it
4) Biodiversity is important
5) It’s a reflection of your character
6) Earth is our home
Thus our organization is aware and working continuously for the preservation of Environment and Human Right through out the country.
