Expectation and Theme[edit]

Wikimedians will learn about access to neutral, fact-based, and current information around our Right to Healthy Environment. The Right to a healthy environment is a legal right acknowledged by the UN, but also a way of connecting human rights and the triple planetary crisis we face: climate change, pollution, and biodiversity loss. As the UN Environmental Program highlighted: we need to make Peace with Nature, and human rights need to be at the center of the solutions.
