The most common policy strategies for promoting sustainable development are regulatory and economic. However, there is increasing interest in an alternative or complementary idea, namely, 'environmental citizenship'. This article seeks to develop a particular interpretation of environmental citizenship. It is argued that a consistent political liberalism must conceive of its citizens as 'citizens of an environment'. An account of liberal environmental citizenship is proposed, and the rights and duties of the liberal environmental citizen are outlined and discussed.
