Conference on Human Rights for the Planet.

Source: Ejil Talk

February 16, 2020

Clean environment is a precondition to the enjoyment of human rights. Climate change, loss of biodiversity, depletion of natural resources and chemical pollution bring new challenges for society, Governments and the European Court of Human Rights. How will the Court take account of these issues when interpreting the ECHR in future cases relating to the environment? Meaningful answers to this question call for a general and conceptual reflection on the role of international human rights tribunals in reviewing Member States’ efforts to comply with their obligations under the environmental law to mitigate and adapt to the effects of the climate crisis and to stop nature’s degradation. The High Level Conference “Human Rights for the Planet” will be held on 9 April 2020 on the premises of the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France. The conference aims at facilitating a debate between the Court’s Judges, as well as practitioners and academic experts in the fields of international environmental law and human rights. Details and registration can be found here
