The Eco-Jurisprudence Monitor is an interactive online platform that compiles ecological jurisprudence initiatives globally as well as related resources for activists, lawyers, policymakers, and researchers. The rapid growth in the number of ecological law initiatives, as well as their varied legal and cultural expressions, presents an obstacle to those seeking to advance more eco-centric legal and governance systems to help enact the change needed to address looming environmental crises. The EJ Monitor is meant to help overcome this problem and provide information resources people can use to promote change.

Use the toolkit

The On the Ground Strategies & Stories page provides rich description and context about individual initiatives and allows activists to tell their stories in their own words, as well as provide information about how other might become involved in their initiative. Each initiative will have its own wikipage containing this information, which will allow activists to control the information related to their initiative if they wish.

What the projects are for

The Academic hub facilitates the undertaking of a diverse range of projects that pursue both GARN’s and the Academic hub’s goals. Anyone can propose a project to the Steering Committee of the Academic hub for approval.

How to propose a project

Anyone can propose a project to the Steering Committee of the Academic Hub for approval. In order to present a project, a project lead must present a full proposal, containing potential funding requests and a comprehensive outline of the project scope, goals, and team. If the Steering Committee agrees that the project conforms with GARN and the Academic Hub’s general objectives, the project is then included in the list of projects supported by the Academic Hub. Approved projects can be either active or ready to be activated. If the former, their project lead becomes part of the Enlarged Committee. If the latter, the project is ready to be activated when the activating condition is met (generally, when funding is obtained).
