Law, Sustainability & Lifestyle
The Crossroad of Law, Lifestyle & Sustainability
This is a creative platform on interests intersecting the cross-roads of law, sustainability and lifestyle. I am a practicing Advocate and work on brief from attorneys, this is a visionary site to exchange content, case law analysis and other relevant information.
The areas of law operate mainly through the lense of environmental, development and construction related issues. However, some topics also relate to issues of the business of legal practice management, mentorship and the transfer of legal skills. It includes a blog of recent cases and articles of interest to practicing lawyers. There are also networking events and mentorship opportunities in the pipeline.
The intent is to create a dialogue for lawyers, advocates, judges, legal advisors, law students and a broad range of visitors to collaborate, learn and share insights on law and life. It is a nook and cranny for stories – lived experiences of justice and injustice, creativity and conservation.
Why A Debate?
It can help with
Rising temperatures are affecting developed and developing nations.
African countries are under extreme pressure to deliver basic services: water, sewer, sanitation and infrastructure. The tension comes into play between service delivery for communities in a sustainable way.

There is a strong correlation between unsustainable patterns of development, degraded and poor human health. Anecdotal evidence suggests greening of cities supports attempts to stamp out depression.
The right to a safe and healthy environment is a Constitutional right in many countries. What does this right mean when balanced against competing rights?
There is a rapid infiltration of IT and AI in the spheres of law. Law students require mentorship in the fields of legal entrepreneurship.
"The planet's biggest problems have to do with sustainability, environmental decline, global poverty, disease, conflict and so forth. Really, they're all interconnected - it's one big problem, which is that the way we're doing things can't go on."
