3rd Hamburg International Environmental Law Conference on 15th and 16th April 2016
The third Hamburg International Environmental Law Conference (HIELC 2016) will take place on the 15th and 16th of April 2016 in Hamburg. Under the title “A Sea Change for Sustainable Ocean Resource Governance” and the participation of international leading experts on environmental law, focal points of the discussion will be deep sea mining, marine energy and ocean bed pipe and cable systems.
Environmental protection remains a very pressing issue of our time. In addressing the need for change in this area, one of the goals of the HIELC 2016 is to make recommendations for the establishment of new guidelines governing the sustainable use of ocean resources and mitigating threats to marine environments. We are awaiting international participation from natural scientists, lawyers and other interested professionals from all over the world to discuss the balance between the economically efficient use of ocean resources and the preservation of the ocean’s ecosystem.
