In many countries across the world active environmental citizenship is flourishing. Citizens are increasingly aware of their right to have a say on the environment they live in and to demand participation in decisions that may affect their own and their children’s lives. However, environmental democracy is not a given. Its increasing importance is a response to the implementation of numerous projects in the past that have had a significant impact on the environment and the livelihoods of people. These projects were pursued over the objections of the public and, in particular, those of vulnerable groups, such as children and women, rural communities and the poor.
