This summer, the Utrecht Centre for Water, Oceans and Sustainability Law (UCWOSL) offers a Summer School on Law and Sustainability.
Students will learn how issues of sustainability are dealt with in the legal order 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 content of the Sustainable Development Goals; human rights based approach to environmental issues (e.g. human right to water); sustainable use of natural resources, such as freshwater, the oceans, the atmosphere; and the economic dimensions and opportunities of sustainability.
Date: 2-6 July 2018
Credits: 1,5 ECTS
