All people have a human right to a healthy environment in which to live, work, and play experiencing opportunities to participate in realizing this principle is a key expression of this birthright. In reality this is not the experience of many  making vigilant questioning as to the exercise, distribution, and manifestations of power relations and resources essential if we are to aspire for more egalitarian and democratic societies. The social context and choices of individuals/organizations/states is thus called into question with criticality and purpose.  Activities such as tourism and immigration, for example, come packaged with great potentiality and challenges, especially in an increasingly globalized world. Broad determinants of public health are taking center stage as marginalized populations shoulder a disproportion amount of environmental costs and vulnerabilities.
