The UN and other partners have launched a new Global Initiative to Advance Children’s Right to a Healthy Environment, from 2019-2021. Children and youth from around the world are being invited to share their views and concerns on environmental issues, and these will be shared widely with decision-makers at country, regional and global level. Based on the inputs from children and young people, a Global Declaration on Children’s Right to a Healthy Environment will be developed and handed over to world leaders in 2021.
