The Visegrad 4 Aarhus Center
Experts Meet in Budapest
V4 environmental lawyers and colleagues from public interest
environmental law offices from Austria, Estonia and Germany meet in
Budapest today to discuss developments of EU and Member State laws and
practices relating to access to environmental justice.
Legal experts from NGOs come together within a new project on access to environmental justice and talk about how legislation and case law develops in this particular area.
The participants of the Budapest workshop also coordinate their work on the public toolkit on how to use these rights, the online information platform on environmental justice and the Access to Justice Newsletters that will be produced within the project.
As special guests, staff members of the Ombudsman Office of Hungary will join our meeting today.

The project is co-financed by the Governments of Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia through Visegrad Grants from International Visegrad Fund. The mission of the fund is to advance ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe.
