The Right to a Healthy Environment

I am an International Leader of Tomorrow Award recipient at UBC Vancouver. Our utmost priority is to contribute to local communities and, on a large scale, to the world. Me and two other scholars partnered up with the David Suzuki Foundation (DSF) to work on the Blue Dot Movement. The movement empowers communities across Canada to pass the right to a healthy environment to their local legislation.DSF's ultimate aim is to persuade the federal government to pass the same right to the Constitution.
