UKELA Scotland Annual Conference: Access to Environmental Justice
9.3am registration for 10am start
Join us in Edinburgh for our annual conference on the theme of Access to Environmental Justice & Other Issues
Access to Environmental Justice is a key issue in Scotland with renewable energy developments and the possibility of the moratorium on fracking being eased and the proposals for more infrastructure developments. The conference addresses the impact of environmental decisions on communities and the key issues for members of the public seeking to challenge such developments, arguing for an environmental court.
In addition the conference covers regulation, environmental crime and the changing enforcement landscape; sustainable housing development; the key environmental topics of 2017 and a case law update. An essential networking opportunity for all those involved in environmental law in Scotland with 6 hours CPD.
