New Brunswickers recognize that global environmental changes have triggered unprecedented events such as our recent catastrophic floods, droughts, and severe weather events.

That is why an Act addressing the human right to a healthy environment is being proposed for the Province of New Brunswick:  The NB Environmental Bill of Rights: An Act to Protect Children, all New Brunswickers and Nature.  Our “made in New Brunswick” child-focused Bill of Environmental Rights will recognize that children, and therefore all our people and future generations have the right to a healthy environment. An Act such as this has the potential to become, in the words of David R. Boyd, UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and the Environment, “a powerful catalyst for accelerating progress toward a sustainable future.”

ACT NOW
Sign up as a supporter of this proposed act and email your MLA to encourage them to support it. Together we can advocate for the right to a healthy environment in New Brunswick!

The Environmental Bill of Rights: An Act to Protect Children, All New Brunswickers and Nature is an ongoing initiative of the New Brunswick Environmental Rights Caucus.

The Environmental Rights Caucus brings groups together to work towards the establishment of an Environmental Bill of Rights in New Brunswick. The caucus goals include:

  • Pushing forward legislation around human rights to healthy environments,
  • Encouraging public engagement,
  • Bringing media and political attention to Environmental Rights.

In July 2019, the Environmental Rights Caucus met in person with various stakeholders to revise and update the 2016 New Brunswick Environmental Bill of Rights drafted by the East Coast Environmental Law for the New Brunswick Environmental Rights Working Group. From this meeting emerged the New Brunswick Environmental Bill of Rights: An Act to Protect Children, All New Brunswickers and Nature. You can read it here.

The proposed New Brunswick Environmental Bill of Rights: An Act to Protect Children, All New Brunswickers and Nature was launched on June 2nd, 2021. Learn more and sign up as a supporter by clicking here.

The NBEN brings environmental groups together to work on environmental rights issues through its caucus approach.
