Join us for the GL-UNA Human Rights Day Program
'The Essential Intersection: The U.N. Declaration of Human Rights, SDGs and Environmental Justice'
Presented by Marie Adele Grosso, Terry Link, and Jeremy Orr
This virtual event will offer presentations about the UN Declaration of Human Rights and the ways the Declaration is connected to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In addition, we will explore how the SDGs about Environmental Justice are related to our understanding of Human Rights.
