La reconnaissance juridique de l'éducation à l'environnement

Abstract : Since 1977, when environmental education was included in French legislation by means of a circular, the subject has continued to spread throughout the law. This expansion is taking shape at all levels of the hierarchy of norms, with environmental education being enshrined in law as well as in the constitution. The identification of the legal conditions for the recognition of environmental education underlines the capacity of the legal system to take on newsubjects. Nevertheless, the apprehension of this complex and multidimensional subject poses difficulties. On the one hand, the scope of the legal rules recognising environmental education is weak and resembles a simple declaration of intent. On the other hand, the use of these rules by their recipients remains weak or even non-existent, which questions the legitimacy of such an introduction in the law. In reaction to this observation, the thesis proposes to demonstrate that environmental education plays a major role in achieving the objectives of environmental protection, but also in the effectiveness of environmental law. Thus, the accumulation of relative rules on this subject has led to the building of a solid legal foundation for its expansion. The challenge of this research is therefore twofold. Initially, it aims to clarify the legal value of the texts relating to environmental education by underlining, in particular, therelationships of implication that it has with other rights. In addition, it aims to provide a stable legal framework for an essential requirement for environmental protection.
