There is often a disconnect between human rights issues and the protection of the environment. There is little talk about how the environment is key in the narrative of human rights in UDHR and other documents. The SDGs are a huge step towards seeing the big picture. I think it is crucial for people in both areas to see how they benefit one another. We know that lower income and minority groups are more affected by poor environmental conditions. It seems pointless for people to continue on their work without acknowledging that overlap. This project thus far had been a great way for me to apply my background in environmental biology to real life human rights issue. It is a missing link while we strive for equality.
