Access to justice is a fundamental means through which citizens and NGOs can support the implementation and enforcement of laws and policies to protect the environment. Access to Justice for a Greener Europe focuses on raising awareness about the legal possibilities available for citizens and NGOs to help protect the environment through access to justice.
Managed by ClientEarth and Justice & Environment over eight European states, the project aims to improve the implementation and enforcement of environmental law in EU countries by making sure the public can challenge law breaking in court.
Making sure Europeans can bring environmental cases to court is the goal of the “Access to Justice for a greener Europe” (A2J EARL) project.
