In honor of the University of Illinois Chicago School of Law’s 27th annual Belle R. & Joseph H. Braun Memorial Symposium and its focus on environmental justice and human rights, we’re introducing sustainable conferencing, and you’re invited.

What is sustainable conferencing?

  • The opportunity to attend in-person at our livestream watch party or via Zoom.
  • Limited paper use for symposium materials.
  • Lunch provided by locally sourced catering.
  • All in-person attendees will receive a swag bag that’s good for the environment.

This year’s theme, Environmental Justice and Human Rights in the Americas and the Caribbean, will examine the recognition of the human right to a healthy environment, and the protection of environmental human rights in the Americas and the Caribbean. Expert panelists​ will delve into different ways advocates have engaged in environmental human rights advocacy through Inter-American Human Rights litigation and with the Escazú Agreement.

There will also be opportunities for networking, photo fun and more. Register for free to attend.
