In course of the project, EELC will focus on two important directions:

  •  EELC lawyers will provide free legal aid – from May 2012 we will advise citizens and NGOs in the environmental decision-making processes. Legal aid includes explaining possibilities of participation, assisting in the formulation of opinions and positions and communication with authorities;
  • practical online/web-based guidelines with instructions on how to participate in spatial planning and environmental permits proceedings will be drawn up; these will be introduced to the public in autumn 2012.

 The project is financed by Environmental Investment Centre; the budget is € 19 458.
