Community Law & Mediation work with Environmental Justice Network Ireland to launch a new Manual of Environmental Justice

Community Law & Mediation has partnered with the Environmental Justice Network Ireland to establish the Manual of Environmental Justice, as research shows that 78% of academics, activists, NGOs and broader civil society groups cite ‘lack of accessibility to expertise and/or information’ as a main obstacle to carrying out their work.

The Manual of Environmental Justice is a digital toolkit which aims to resource and connect organisations and communities across the island of Ireland on intersectional environmental issues. It is free to use and provides an expert directory for people working in environmental and social justice, an advocacy map which shows locations of environmental and social groups across Ireland and a resources hub which contains a range of expert and journalistic articles, blogs, podcasts and videos.

Clodagh Daly, CLM’s Centre of Environmental Justice Manager, said: “Community Law & Mediation is delighted to be launching the Manual of Environmental Justice with Environmental Justice Network Ireland. The Manual is a one-stop informational toolkit which allows anyone to easily access environmental justice resources, connect with environmental organisations and grassroots groups, and contact environmental experts. We hope this toolkit will enable more people, communities, and organisations to become engaged and empowered on environmental justice matters. We have worked for the past year on developing the Manual of Environmental Justice and want to give Community Foundation Ireland special recognition for funding this project.”

Ciara Brennan, Director and Academic Lead at the EJNI, said: ““Environmental Justice Network Ireland are delighted to be collaborating with Community Law & Mediation on the new Manual of Environmental Justice digital toolkit. Our needs assessment consultation identified a clear requirement for a hub of information on environmental justice to benefit people living across the island of Ireland. The Manual of Environmental Justice has the potential to play a pivotal role in providing essential information to citizens and community organisations engaged in environmental and social justice campaigning, research and advocacy to help confront and overcome shared environmental challenges.”

The Manual of Environmental Justice was launched last week by a joint event with Community Law & Mediation and Environmental Justice Network Ireland. Guest speakers included Niamh Guiry, climate activist and member of Not Here Not Anywhere; and Cormac McAleer, member of Save our Sperrins. Watch the launch event below.
