International Symposium on Environmental Law
2-3 September 2021
The Normandie Chair for Peace, International Council of Environmental Law and World Commission on Environmental Law proposed to convene a symposium on environmental law on the eve of the IUCN World Conservation Congress to focus on the new studies of NCP, especially the rights of future generations and the rights of nature and the rights of indigenous peoples.
The organizers of the World Conservation Congress had received many proposals to explore legal issues (the first 4 days of presentations), but many topics did not find their way into the Congress sessions. To advance environmental legal concepts with all IUCN’s members, as well as engage the jurists who are involved in the WCEL and ICEL, ICEL agreed with NCP and WCEL to organize a symposium.
France, as host of the WCC, and IUCN have postponed the WCC twice. It is now scheduled for September 2021 in Marseille, France.
