    25 year plan for the environment full of empty promises

    The UK government’s 25 year plan for the environment is underwhelming and does little to help people and the planet now, environmental lawyers ClientEarth said today.

    Water management cannot be out of public control

    The Court of Justice ruled that environmental NGOs must have the right to participate in water permit proceedings and to challenge them before courts.

  • Developments on Access to Justice in 2017: focus on Austria, Germany, Estonia, Hungary, Slovakia and Spain

    As 2018 has just begun let’s step back a little and see how the situation on access to justice in environmental matters developed last year, focussing on six (out of eight) European member states involved in the “Access to Justice for a greener Europe” project : Austria, Germany, Estonia, Hungary, Slovakia and Spain.

  • European Economic and Social Committee call for full implementation of access to justice obligations by Member States and the EU

    The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) has issued an opinion on the Commission’s Communication on Access to Justice in Environmental Matters. The Opinion makes a number of strong recommendations to the EU institutions and the Member States regarding the implementation of the access to justice pillar of the Aarhus Convention.

  • “Working at ClientEarth allows me to practise as a lawyer and fight for a cause I believe in at the same time. Ensuring the correct implementation of the Aarhus Convention not only leads to a better protection of the environment and public health but also brings democracy in providing the public with rights that make them part of the decision-making process and in turn make our decision-makers accountable. Aarhus is about enabling the people to make the future their own.”
