The Scottish Government’s consultation on Environmental Justice in Scotland has recently ended and it likely that its conclusions and recommendations will appear later this year. This full-day conference, co-hosted by University of Edinburgh department for Social Responsibility and Sustainability & Holyrood Communications, will explore the current landscape of environmental justice in Scotland and how it might need to change in the future.
Sir Crispin Agnew QC‘s keynote address on “a specialist environmental court” will look at how such a court could help to resolve environmental justice disputes and what form this court would take. Sir Crispin is a Patron of the United Kingdom Environmental Law Association (UKELA) and he is recommended by Chambers in Planning & Environmental Law.
Speaking about this event Crispin said “This is a very interesting programme and it is good to see so much NGO and community involvement.”
The conference will take place on Tuesday 4 October at the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation, High School Yards, Edinburgh. For further details and booking information please click here.
