Publisher's Synopsis

Key Selling Points Fresh Air, Clean Water profiles kids taking action on environmental rights around the world and gives young readers an understanding of their right to a healthy environment, how environmental rights are tied to human rights and the tools needed to take action. This is a timely topic, given news coverage of climate protests and youth activists such as Greta Thunberg and Autumn Peltier. Many countries have now protected the right to a healthy environment in their constitutions, and there is discussion at the United Nations about creating a global right to a healthy environment. Introduces critical environmental and social justice questions and connects them to recent history for context. Details environmental rights cases from around the world, many featuring children and youth; for example, from Columbia, the Philippines, the United States and Canada. With her background in environmental activism and social justice, the author is an authoritative guide on this topic. Features full-color illustrations and photos throughout.
