Series: Green City Week
Debbie Tripley, Chief Executive of the Environmental Law Foundation (www.elflaw.org), will be speaking generally about current biodiversity losses, what's proposed at the international level and what's needed at the local level. Debbie has extensive legal and professional experience in environmental public law. She was Head of Legal at Greenpeace for six years, and after retraining as a barrister joined the Environment Team at Fenners Chambers, Cambridge.
She has written numerous articles on environmental legal issues and has been behind several important environmental
legal challenges including successfully showing the government to be in breach of the EU Habitat’s Directive.
Since then the government has introduced the Marine Act (2009), new legislation on which Debbie advised WWF-UK and
Wildlife & Countryside.
This event is open to students and staff of City University London and to the local community. Registration required.
