On the 1st of April Springtij Forum is organising an exclusive Masterclass on Legal Action for a sustainable world, by Worldconnector and human rights lawyer Jan van de Venis and environmental lawyer Polly Higgens.

Globally, scandals of large scale environmental destruction are regularly revealed. Polly Higgens travels the world to inform national governments and international actors about the need to stop this ‘ecocide’ and to take legal action against environmental offenders. Through his own law firm, Justlaw, and several legal organisations, including Grrrowd and Waterlex, Jan van de Venis is internationally active in defending human rights that have been violated by environmental polluters.

In this interactive Masterclass participants are inspired about innovative ways of applying a Rights-approach to realize a more sustainable world and receive practical handles to take action themselves. This is a unique chance to learn from two leading experts.

The Masterclass is organised by Springtij Forum and Facing Crossroads and is taking place in Pakhuis de Zwijger – the platform for innovative events. There are still places available so subscribe at Springtij. For more information check PhZ.
