Future-Proofing Law in a Time of Environmental Emergency

The 20th Annual Colloquium of the IUCN Academy of Environmental Law

The University of Eastern Finland and its Centre for Climate Change, Energy and Environmental Law are pleased to host the 20th IUCN AEL Colloquium in Joensuu, Finland, from 31 July – 4 August 2023.

For 20 years, the Colloquium has provided an important forum for legal scholars and experts from all over the world to come together to exchange knowledge, experiences and fellowship. In this significant anniversary year, we are happy to bring it to Finland for the first time in its history.

The 2023 Colloquium will be held on the Joensuu Campus of the University of Eastern Finland in a hybrid format, meaning also those who cannot attend in person will be able to participate online.

Under the theme Future-Proofing Law in a Time of Environmental Emergency, we are looking forward to discussing cutting-edge research and perspectives on the future of environmental law in this crucial moment for the field.

More information will be published on this website in due time.

Registrations are now open!
