The EIEL Module hosts an annual series of keynote lectures which are open to be public and touch on the most relevant issues and challenges in European and international environmental law and policy.
The EIEL Module will host at least two annual keynote lectures which will be open to be public and touch on the most relevant issues and challenges in EU and international environmental law and policy. These 2-hour lectures will build interest on the topic of the course among students but also more generally raise awareness in the general public about the importance of EU environmental law and policy in the solution of environmental problems that require collective action within (and outside) the Union’s borders.
These events will be co-hosted by the Department of Law of the University of Siena together with the relevant partners, including entities like the SDSN, IEEP and ASViS, as well as by the institutions with which the speaker is affiliated, when applicable.
