On July 6th, our President, Yann Aguila, alongside Dominique Bourg (Lausanne University), François Gemene (Sciences Po), and Marthe Fatin-Rouge Stéfanini (Aix-Marseille University) reflected on the content of the Environmental Constitution Project. 

Yann Aguila rejoiced over the fact that article 1 of the project stated that Chile is an “environmental State” and that articles 103 to 107 were dedicated to the right to a healthy environment.

He noted that the notion of coexistence and harmonious balance with nature, based on key environmental principles, is very important, and stressed the importance of setting concrete implementation tools to ensure their realization.
