The world's corporations are bigger than ever, and their influence in today's world is unprecedented. In an era where humans can transform nature but are also extremely vulnerable to natural changes, and where anthropogenic climate change is now incontrovertible, intensified human activity is driving us towards ecological disaster. Do we move to rein in corporate power and its environmental impact? Or should we empower corporations to find innovative solutions in our race against time?
Public Interest Environmental Law (PIEL) UK was formed in 2007 by students from various University of London colleges as an unincorporated association and now brings together students from several London universities. Its cause is to champion and raise awareness of environmental justice issues by organising the annual PIEL UK Conference. The inspiration for running a conference on environmental justice comes from the cutting-edge event of the same name that has been running since 1983 in Oregon, USA and attracts thousands of delegates annually. Each year, a new team of student members benefits from the generous support of an Advisory Board consisting of academics, professionals and activists.
