Green Amendments For The Generations

A national movement that began out of the Delaware River watershed.

The goal of the Green Amendments For The Generations initiative is to advance a Green Amendment movement that sweeps the nation and secures for all people constitutional recognition and protection of their inalienable rights to clean water, clean air and healthy environments.  We seek to inspire and support pursuit and passage of Green Amendments (environmental rights amendments) in the Bill of Rights section of every state constitution across the U.S. and ultimately at the federal level.  Once Green Amendments are accomplished (currently only 2 states have such a provision, one as the direct result of this Green Amendment movement), we will work with communities to ensure their strong and meaningful implementation.

For the Generations project is powered by the Delaware Riverkeeper Network. For more information, visit us at
