Environmental democracy exists when the public is able to timely and freely access information on environmental impacts; participate meaningfully in the related policy-creation and decision-making processes; and demand enforcement of environmental laws, or compensation for damage.
The main legal tool for practicing environmental democracy is the Aarhus Convention.
Macedonia ratified the convention in 1999.

Environmental law has yet to develop in Macedonia and we need volunteers.
If you are a law student or a young lawyer and eager to protect the environment, please send us a motivational letter.
We provide theoretical and practical training in environmental law and NGO campaigning, as well as job opportunities for the most successful volunteers/trainees.
