Environment

In the sections below you can access training tools which have been developed by the European Commission in support to all training structures and trainers with an interest in EU environmental law. They can be used in a European, national or local training context, and adapted to specific needs and target groups.

The training package on EU environmental law consists of “modules” (a training package dedicated to a specific topic such as “EU Waste Legislation”). Each module is divided in “sessions” (specific training exercises, e.g. case-studies, presentation of Directives, etc.).

The modules are a mix of front-teaching presentations and interactive work on case-studies (four case-studies during seminars of 2,5 days). However, trainers can use freely this material and for instance, design their own seminars by selecting only a limited sub-set of available sessions.

The training package can be used freely. It is distributed under the Creative Commons License. This means that modules and sessions can be reproduced and integrated in training events as long as the source is acknowledged.
