Graduates of the EarthRights School are a group of inspiring individuals from Myanmar, the Mekong region, and the Amazon region who are dedicated to the non-violent defense of human rights, the advancement of social change, and the prevention of environmental abuses.
Our alumni come from diverse backgrounds representing over 45 ethnic groups and are dispersed across 13 countries. Despite such diversity, their shared experiences have brought them together to form a vibrant network of activists. Earth Rights School alumni have experienced first-hand the human rights and environmental abuses caused by governments, corporations, and international financial institutions in their communities.
Our alumni put their skills into action in their home communities by organizing trainings for fellow activists, leaders, and journalists to equip them with the skills necessary to raise local voices against environmental and human rights abuses wherever they occur.
