Key Selling Points

  • Fresh Air, Clean Water profiles kids taking action on environmental rights around the world and gives young readers an understanding of their right to a healthy environment, how environmental rights are tied to human rights and the tools needed to take action.  
  • This is a timely topic, given news coverage of climate protests and youth activists such as Greta Thunberg and Autumn Peltier. Many countries have now protected the right to a healthy environment in their constitutions, and there is discussion at the United Nations about creating a global right to a healthy environment.
  • Introduces critical environmental and social justice questions and connects them to recent history for context. 
  • Details environmental rights cases from around the world, many featuring children and youth; for example, from Columbia, the Philippines, the United States and Canada.  
  • With her background in environmental activism and social justice, the author is an authoritative guide on this topic.
  • Features full-color illustrations and photos throughout. 
  • Free Activity Sheet is available for download at orcabook.com.
