This report exposes the content of some of specific environmental European directives relevant to Environmental Justice in a simple and accessible manner to non experts and to provide proposals on which to build dialogue with European and national institutions. A first part synthesizes directives’ content and functioning, illustrating their application in the legal system with examples of Court cases. The second part presents a few critical observations and recommendations based on the idea that environmental protection must be a european top priority and it cannot be pursued if not by establishing all due connections between the state of the environment and human health.
