The Association Sunce and the Faculty of Law in Split have continued their cooperation with which they connect the practice, science and higher education in the field of environmental law. Namely, Association Sunce continues to be the teaching base for students of the Faculty of Law in this and next academic year. A program of professional practice was also developed as a part of the SEAS project.
A significant role in the SEAS project have the decision-making, law-making and policy-making bodies at the national and local levels. The academic community makes up a large part of the project too, especially energetic and motivated students and young people who will help to make a change and strengthen civic awareness of the importance of protecting the marine environment and active civic engagement in protecting it among their populations.
Under the guidance of mentors Ivana Krstulović Baković and Hajdi Biuk, Association Sunce lawyers, students will have the opportunity to work on interesting subjects such as violations of the right to a healthy environment or the right to public participation in environmental issues.
The climate crisis is making the public more aware of the need to be united if we want to protect the sea and the marine environment, as well as the need for mentoring young people about these topics because the world rests on the young.
The SEAS project is implemented with the financial support of Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway within the European Economic Area and Norwegian grants, and our project partners are also WWF Adria, The Green Istria Association, Urbanex d.o.o. and the University of South-Eastern Norway (USN).
