Environmental Defenders Office Ltd.

From Tuesday 17 March, EDO operations will be undertaken remotely and online. All outreach workshops, seminars and other educational programs that can be reformatted and offered as online webinars will be. Those that cannot be will be postponed. Supporter events, at this important time of year, will be run in a virtual environment.

Physical offices will be closed, but EDO can still be contacted by phone, email and website. These measures will be reviewed on an ongoing basis to determine whether they remain an appropriate response.

The Environmental Defenders Office (Qld) Inc. is a non-profit, non-government community legal centre dedicated to providing legal assistance to individuals and community groups working to protect the environment.

Matters must be in the public interest i.e. having significance beyond the material or financial interests of a particular individual or group.
