Right to a future consistent with human dignity and right to clean air in light of constitutional values and rules
This article is concerned with the right to a future consistent with human dignity and the right to clean air. Environmental protection is one of the constituents of ecological security. Actions taken to ensure ecological security and protection of natural environment are multidimensional in character. They pertain to not only the duties of public authority but they also strongly affect the area of rights and liberties of an individual. The right to environment of adequate quality is a fundamental human right. Public authorities should strive to improve the present state of the environment and direct its subsequent development such that current as well as future generations can lead a dignified life. The right to clean air ought to be interpreted as a personal right resulting from constitutional values and rules.
