We acknowledge the intrinsic link between biodiversity and human rights. Biodiversity encompasses the vast array of ecosystems, species, and genetic diversity that exist on Earth. It provides essential resources for human survival, such as food, medicine, and clean air and water. Protecting biodiversity is therefore not only an environmental imperative but also a matter of ensuring the rights and well-being of present and future generations.
As Chairs of Human Rights Solidarity, Berk Batin, a first-year psychology student at Kings College London, and Burak Batuhan Karakus, a second-year law student at City, University of London, we are honoured to spearhead a project with a dedicated team of passionate individuals. Together, we are committed to upholding human rights and working towards making a lasting impact in our society.
Recognizing the interconnectedness of human rights and biodiversity, we strive to be the water that nourishes the sapling of human rights while fostering the preservation and sustainable management of biodiversity. By advocating for justice, equality, and dignity, we aim to create a world where the rights of all individuals are respected, protected, and harmoniously coexist with the natural world.
