The Exchange: Should a Clean and Healthy Environment Be a Constitutional Right?

This research and deliberation activity is designed to encourage students to look at the issue of climate change and environmental regulation from a constitutional perspective and then to find political and economic measures to address environmental regulation. In any deliberation activity, compromise and listening will play a key role in finding common ground.

This resource was developed as part of The Exchange: A Marketplace of Student Ideas, the National Constitution Center’s nationwide conversation series on current constitutional issues.
