Students give voice to the environment

Are you a student who wants to apply your acquired knowledge in environmental protection?

Are you interested in your environmental rights?

Come to the bicycle event on September 24 from 5 to 8 p.m. in Đardin and look for the stand of the Sunce Environmental Law Department!

Sardines cannot fight for a clean sea on their own, just as the environment cannot be protected on its own if it is threatened, that is why students of the Faculty of Law and a volunteer of the Green Phone of the Sunce, with the support of our lawyers, will answer questions on how to become the voice of the environment at the information stand.

So far, Sunce has received over 5,000 applications to the Green Phone, and successfully solved about 80% of the cases. Through these reports, we came to the conclusion that the sea and the coast are today exposed to numerous pressures from growing economic sectors, i.e. human activities (such as: fishing, tourism, construction, etc.). The long-term work of Sunce’s environmental law department and the work on the Green Telephone service was the inspiration for the project Save the Ecosystems of the Adriatic Sea with Active Participation – SEAS, which is aimed at advocating sustainable management of the marine environment.

The goal of this project is also to empower the academic community, which will help to initiate changes and strengthen civic awareness with its energy and motivation. Through the project, the students gained knowledge about environmental law and how it is implemented, which they will be happy to share with everyone. With a louder echo of citizens’ voices, together we can influence the development of these rights in the Republic of Croatia.

So come to the Bike Fair on September 24, find a student stand in Đardin and become the voice of the environment!

The project SEAS is implemented with the financial support of Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway within the EEA grants, and our project partners are WWF Adria, Udruga Zelena Istra, Urbanex d.o.o. and the University of South-Eastern Norway (USN).
