The Road-Sharing Movement: Philippine Environmental Law in Action

The Environmental Law Program Colloquium Series presents The Road-Sharing Movement: Philippine Environmental Law in Action featuring internationally-renowned environmental activist Antonio Oposa, Jr.

Considered one of Asia’s leading environmental activist, Mr. Oposa has organized enforcement operations against environmental crime syndicates, won an unprecedented legal battle against twelve Philippine government agencies compelling the clean up of Manila Bay, and established the right to sue on behalf of future generations to stop environmental damage today (now known as the “Oposa Doctrine”). In his latest venture, Mr. Oposa, together with a hundred lawyers, representing the carless people of the Philippines, will soon file a petition compelling the Philippine goverment to reform the road and transportation system of the entire country. Learn from one of the Philippines’ foremost environmental litigator, organizer, and activist.
