This episode of the Green Interview features Jan van de Venis, an extraordinary Dutch lawyer who lives at the intersection of human rights and sustainable development. He's deeply concerned about the human right to drinkable water for instance but industrial developments often use vast quantities of water and leave it totally contaminated. Sustainable development therefore has to respect the human right to drinkable water and so in addition to running his own law firm Just Law in Utrecht Jan van de Venis is also Director of the Legal Desk at the Swiss water conservation group WaterLex. He's also cofounder of a public service organization called Stand Up For Your Rights and the President of Grrrowd, which uses crowd funding to support and protect environmental protectors around the world. He's a member of the influential network of Dutch leaders called World Connectors and within World Connectors he leads the effort to create a new position within governments called the Ombudsperson.
