“There is increasing awareness of the threats of human activities on nature and people. In many instances however, actions to enforce increased environmental justice are still scant and the acceptance of the status quo is still the norm. Working at ClientEarth, an organisation that unites law, policy research and science, is a unique chance to participate in constructively challenging this status quo and proposing alternative solutions to systematic degradation.”
