ClientEarth is urging MEPs to vote to stop the use of harmful pesticides in Ecological Focus Areas (EFAs).
Pressure is mounting on the Polish government, as the UN and the European Commission are very worried about a huge, illegal increase of logging in Europe’s oldest forest.
UN advisors have called on the Polish government to allow officials to check whether illegal logging means Bialowieza forest should go on the World Heritage in Danger list.
Europe’s newest gas pipeline does not comply with EU law, environment charities have warned.

“Sometimes my work for ClientEarth means I’m on the ‘frontline’, raising legal arguments with decision-makers; sometimes I can only bask in reflected glory when our work has been behind the scenes. But whenever change happens for the better, however it happens, I appreciate just how rewarding it is to work at ClientEarth.”
