The effective functioning of civic society is crucial to the functioning of a state.

Citizen action very often becomes decisive for resolution of environmental problems.

Citizens’ awareness of their rights and freedoms is a key to the effectiveness of civic society.

A great part of EPL’s work aims to inform citizens about their rights, in particular in the environmental sphere, and to empower them in realization of these rights.

EPL does this by providing consultations, conducting seminars and conferences, litigating, and publishing the EPL Journal.

Many of EPL court cases attempt to protect people whose rights were violated in some way.

Also, EPL endeavours to raise a new generation of environmental lawyers who realize the great importance of environmental protection and have effective tools to accomplish it.

EPL’s cooperation with NGOs in Ukraine and abroad grows every year, and provides EPL opportunities to widen its experience and raise its professional capacities.
