The aim of the second scientific conference is to critically asses the challenges posed by environmental protection at the international level and address them through the provision of creative international environmental law solutions. The conference, which addresses one of the most important topics for the future of humankind, is set up as an interdisciplinary debate between environmental scientists and legal experts. It will thus offer a new forum for debate and innovative thinking in search of new international environmental law solutions.
