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 the content of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); sustainable use of natural resources, such as freshwater, the oceans, the atmosphere; and the economic dimensions and opportunities of sustainability. These and similar issues will be covered in this Summer School on Law and Sustainability.
