Thriving Together Campaign

A hugely diverse alliance of over 150 organisations working in 170 countries support the Thriving Together statement. Whether their work has a focus on conserving endangered species, providing family planning services, restoring habitats, promoting sexual and reproductive health and rights or a range of other human and environmental health issues, they all agree with the Thriving Together statement. At the heart of the statement is the widespread agreement, for the first time, that removal of barriers to family planning is critically important not only for women and girls, but also for environmental conservation and biodiversity. The Trust’s paper “Removing Barriers to Family Planning, Empowering Sustainable Environmental Conservation: A Background Paper and Call for Action” summarises why removing barriers to family planning is critical for women’s and girls’ health and empowerment, and sustainable environmental conservation.

    Healthy Wetlands for the Cranes and People of Rukiga, Uganda

    Rukiga’s wetlands are under increasing pressures from a growing human population needing farmland. The wetlands are vital for humans (for food and water security, and preventing flooding), and Uganda’s national bird, the endangered Grey Crowned Crane (for nesting habitat). The people living around the wetlands understand the connections between human and environmental health and are passionate defenders of the cranes. The Margaret Pyke Trust, Rugarama Hospital, and the International Crane Foundation in partnership with the Endangered Wildlife Trust, are working with the local communities to empower them to conserve wetlands, benefitting not only their own health and wellbeing, but wetland health too.
