16.3: Promote the rule of law at the national and international levels and ensure equal access to justice for all.

Water for Life and Peace

Through our advocacy we work to lobby for international frameworks, particularly with the United Nations Watercourses Convention, which promotes the harmonious sharing of water resources. We also promote water as a human right to ensure all people have access to this fundamental resource.

Environmental Security and Sustainability

We support institutions such as the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), which promotes international law and ensures that those who violate such conventions are held accountable for their actions.


16.4: By 2030, significantly reduce illicit financial and arms flows, strengthen the recovery and return of stolen assets and combat all forms of organized crime.

Environmental Security and Sustainability

By promoting institutions such as the OPCW and the CWC, we uphold international standards of humanitarian law in warfare. As such, these frameworks are essential in identifying and thereby combatting illicit arms flows.


16.10: Ensure public access to information and protect fundamental freedoms, in accordance with national legislation and international agreements.

Value Change

We promote international climate agreements, such as the Paris Climate Agreement, through our public education projects aimed at increasing awareness of environmental challenges and sustainable development.
