Welcome to our new News and Community page!
This is a space where members can post events, job postings, upcoming conferences and other news, but it is also a space for comment, opinion, debate and blogging.
The idea is that this is a platform for members to come together and ask each other questions, keep each other informed and engage with each other about the crucial issues animating the field. We want it to be a new hub for the human rights and environment community, as well as a community-built resource on events and developments in the field.
Please have a look at recent posts on the upcoming Symposium on Dignity Rights and Environmental Justice, on the latest edition of the Journal of Human Rights and Environment, and a welcome to new members of the network.
At this stage, all are welcome to comment on the page. If, in addition, you would like to post any news, blogs or other content, please send the details to firstname.lastname@example.org. Over the next few months we will be opening the page up to members to post directly, and we will keep you updated on the details. In the meantime, please send us your thoughts and comments.

Delaware Law School (U.S.) is pleased to announce a Symposium on Dignity Rights and Environmental Justice on 13 April 2018. The event, which will be held in Delaware and livestreamed, will examine environmental justice through the lens of human dignity and will explore how legal responses including the right to human dignity might alleviate the burdens of environmental injustice throughout the world. A diverse group of activists, policy-makers, jurists, practitioners, academics, students, and others will join us to explore principled and practical approaches to advancing environmental justice in our own local neighborhoods and in communities around the world. The event is co-sponsored by the Dignity Rights Project, Widener Law Review, Coming Clean, Delaware Concerned Residents for Environmental Justice, the First State Fund, the ABA Section on Civil Rights and Social Justice, and the Global Network for Human Rights and the Environment. For more information, please contact Erin Daly (email@example.com) and Jimmy May (firstname.lastname@example.org).
