Why should you participate?
Every human being should have a safe, clean, healthy, and sustainable environment to live in. Fortunately, the right to a healthy environment is recognized in one way or another in more than 150 countries worldwide. #WikiForHumanRights campaign encourages Wikimedians and advocates to document on Wikipedia and other Wikimedia platforms the story of these rights which enable a safe and stable climate, healthy ecosystems, and a non-toxic environment: we can increase knowledge about the healthy natural systems upon which all people rely for the water they drink, the air they breathe, the food they eat and the resources they need.
