With around 335 million tonnes of plastic produced each year and dangerous chemicals found everywhere from household dust to the Arctic, ClientEarth’s work to safeguard human health is never more relevant than it is today.
During this one hour webinar, we introduce you to ClientEarth experts Chemicals Project Lead, Dr. Apolline Roger and Tatiana Lujan, Plastics Lead Lawyer, who will speak about their work to stem the flow of dangerous chemicals and plastics into our ecosystems and the connections between global health risks and environmental pollution.
Dr. Apolline Roger joined ClientEarth in 2017 to lead our work on the protection of health and the environment from toxic substances. Previously Apolline worked as a researcher and teacher in EU environmental law at the University of Sheffield Law School and Edinburgh Law School. In her academic capacity she has examined many legal issues relating to chemicals and risk regulation, as well as the interactions between trade and the environment. She has provided expert advice to public authorities, including the French Ministry for the Environment and the UK House of Commons’ Environmental Audit Committee in support of its enquiry on the future of chemicals regulation post Brexit.
Tatiana Luján joined ClientEarth in 2018 as a wildlife conservation lawyer. Prior to this, she worked for the London School of Economics and Political Science as a research assistant, focusing on relations between China and Latin America and the impact of those relations in the quality and enforcement of environmental regulations in the region. Before moving to London, Tatiana worked for the chambers of Julio Enrique González Villa, one of Colombia’s most renowned environmental lawyers, on several ground-breaking cases concerning environmental issues. Tatiana is qualified as a lawyer in Colombia.
