Impressions of the past HIELC conferences
Upon the announcement that the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg would be awarded the title of European Green Capital 2011, the newly established association "Internationaler Umweltrechtstag Hamburg e.V." (IURT e.V.) organized the first Hamburg International Environmental Law Conference (HIELC) that took place in September 2011. It was deemed a great success and about 200 researchers and practitioners from all over the world took part. A second and third conference was held in 2013 and 2016 and meanwhile the forth conference is scheduled for the 4th and 5th of April 2019.
