Law and Sustainability Summer School

Law and Sustainability Summer School

Students will learn how issues of sustainability are dealt with at the international, national and EU levels. The summer school will address how the law can buttress sustainability but also how it can create obstacles to the realisation of sustainability objectives. Issues to be addressed may include: introduction to environment and climate change law; the legal nature and the content of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); human rights based approach to environmental issues (e.g. human right to water); sustainable use of natural resources in general; the sustainable use of freshwater resources; the sustainable use of the oceans; the sustainable use of the atmosphere; the economic dimensions and opportunities of sustainability; circular economy and the law.
