SF according to lawyers’ message: Environment and climate must be on the Constitution

The right to, among other things, nature and fresh air must be written into the Constitution.

This is the opinion of SF, which will submit a proposal in the Folketing to have rights regarding climate and environment written into the Constitution.

It tells Jacob Mark, who is group chairman of SF.

The proposal comes after a number of lawyers have argued with Berlingske to make the Constitution cover the environment and climate.

– In SF, we also believe that you must constitutionally secure the right to nature, to fresh air and to the climate where you can actually be.

– These are very basic rights, which are the prerequisite for living a good life, says Jacob Mark.

The Unity List, which is another of the government’s support parties, also supports the message from the lawyers.

According to climate, environment and nature rapporteur Mai Villadsen (EL), consideration for climate and nature must be written into the Constitution. She says this in a post on Twitter.

Norway, Sweden and Finland have already added climate and environmental provisions to their constitutions.

Of course, consideration for climate and nature must be written into the constitution. Climate change is perhaps the greatest threat to the human future. Let’s do as in Norway, Finland and Sweden – and ensure green rights #dkpol #dkgreen https://t.co/BOBAO24eDh

More lawyers want the constitution to contain about rights to nature and fresh air as well as to a climate that is to live in and live with. These are basic rights, which are also prerequisites for being able to live a good life. SF will present the proposal in the Folketing #dkpol
