Getting Our Act Together: Human Rights, Our Environment & Brexit

Wednesday 14 November 2018

Green Room, The Black Box, Belfast


The current round of UK–EU negotiations is reaching the end game. The UK has committed to ensuring a ‘Green Brexit’ and upholding human rights standards as the UK withdraws from the EU.

This event is designed to cut through the jargon and bring together those committed to protecting human rights and our environment to work towards identifying the best way forward. 

We need to ensure that the highest human rights and environmental standards are maintained and fulfilled to reflect the particular circumstances of Northern Ireland, our peace settlement and our all–island environment.
