E-conference "Law under the challenge of the environmental crisis"

The non-profit foundation WWF Greece and the scientific association Nomos + Physis are glad to invite you on Friday, November 6th 2020 to the e-conference “Law under the challenge of the environmental crisis”, which will be heldunder the patronage of H.E. the President of the Hellenic Republic Ms. Katerina Sakellaropoulou.


The conference will be held on the occasion of the publication of the 15th edition of WWF’s annual report on the implementation of the environmental law in Greece and the 25th anniversary of Nomos + Physis, aiming to promote the public discourse on critical issues of the environmental law.

Recent scientific studies have analyzed the consequences of climate change and biodiversity loss on the planet and people’s lives, and have concluded that urgent action is needed. All evidence shows that the next decades will be critical. Distinguished speakers are invited to join the discourse, in order to address a key discussion point: how could the environmental law adapt to and address these constantly changing circumstances?

H.E. the President of the Hellenic Republic Ms. Katerina Sakellaropoulou will address the conference.

The conference is primarily addressed to law practitioners, judges, lawyers, politicians, politicians’ legal advisers, ministries’ executives, NGOs and any individual interested in environmental law issues.
