WHAT IS “CAUSEPLAY, HR and Environment Defenders campaign”?
Inspired by the performance art called cosplay where participants wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character or idea. Targeting the youth and with a twist, “Causeplay” will encourage the youth to join the cause for protection of human rights and our environment.
An information campaign drive by the youth and among the youth about what is human rights, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and who human rights defenders (HRDs) are. It aims to build awareness and generate support for the AMMB and other green bills.
Inspire the youth to assert protection of our environment and the right to safe sound and balance ecology through creative means and the use of social media.
Generate support and mobilize participation in creative actions in calling for the government to respect and protect HR and environment.
Initiate a solidarity campaign for human rights and the environment. Initiate actions to support the call for the repeal of laws that harm the right of the people for a safe, sound and balance ecology and the legislation of green bills.
It’s never hard to be green
Protect our environment and the right to safe sound and balance ecology!
“More than 2 million annual deaths and billions of cases of diseases are attributed to pollution. All over the world, people experience the negative effects of environmental degradation ecosystems decline, including water shortage, fisheries depletion, natural disasters due to deforestation and unsafe management and disposal of toxic and dangerous wastes and products. Indigenous peoples suffer directly from the degradation of the ecosystems that they rely upon for their livelihoods. Climate change is exacerbating many of these negative effects of environmental degradation on human health and wellbeing and is also causing new ones, including an increase in extreme weather events and an increase in spread of malaria and other vector born diseases. These facts clearly show the close linkages between the environment and the enjoyment of human rights, and justify an integrated approach to environment and human rights.” -UN Environment Program (UNEP)
Safe, balance and healthy environment is essential to the realisation of human rights not only of the present but of the future generation. Each of us depends on protecting the environment as the resource base for all life.
