The Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission is a National Human Rights Institution accredited by the United Nations. Our job is to make sure government and other public bodies protect the human rights of everyone in Northern Ireland. We also help people understand what their human rights are and what they can do if their rights are violated.
The UN has now declared the right to a clean, healthy, and sustainable environment as a human right. In addition, the greening of well-established human rights, including the rights to life, health, food, water, housing, culture, development, property and home, and private life, has contributed to improvements in the health and well-being of people worldwide.
We have a number of climate change and human rights videos on our website: www.nihrc.org/our-work/education-promotion/resources
We also offer a limited number of workshops to post-primary schools based on human rights, climate change and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
