Bridging the gap between youth environmental activism and legal engagement
“Legal Seeds” flourish! In 2022-2023 the environmental law project builds upon the previous project and aims at building capacity and raising awareness among young people on current environmental law challenges and opportunities; and at advocating for stronger youth participation in environmental decision making processes.
Main topics of discussion:
