Sustainability and the Law:
Planet. People. Future.
Our 2019 congress in a nutshell
THEMATIC ACADEMIC PROGRAMME
What is the
Aija annual congress?
The annual congress is an event organised by the international association of young lawyers (AIJA) every year. Under this year’s theme ‘Sustainability and the Law: Planet. People. Future’, over 700 international legal professionals are expected to explore the ways in which today’s digitalised and globalised world can become more sustainable.
The theme of this year’s congress is inspired by the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all, according to the UN. To encourage debate, the event will be structured around three thematic areas (Sustainable Society, Sustainable Company and Sustainable Law Practice) to build up extensive knowledge and awareness around the set of 17 goals.
