WEBINAR June 21: ELC presents the Interaction of Environmental Rights and Property Rights
You are invited to an online Zoom webinar hosted by the Environmental Law Centre.
When: Jun 21, 2018 11:00 AM Mountain Time (US and Canada)
Topic: ELC presents the Interaction of Environmental Rights and Property Rights with ELC staff counsel Brenda Heelan Powell
It is well known that components of the environment do not respect legal boundaries. Water flows and crosses national, provincial, territorial and private land boundaries. Likewise, air and species are not contained by legal boundaries. This means that activities on a single parcel of land have the potential to impact the water, air and biodiversity that is shared globally. Such activities may also impact surrounding lands and their owners (whether private or public).
So how does an Environmental Bill of Rights (EBR), which is focused on components of the environment, affect landowners and those with interests in land? Will an EBR inevitably lead to further regulation of private land use? Or will an EBR provide enhanced tools to protect a person’s interests in land?
