Four concrete examples of where the EU’s environmental action has had an impact on the ground, resulting in tangible benefits for its citizens. 1- In his little community of Greenore in Ireland, James Larkin has battled for years to give public recognition to the illegality of two sites of refuse dumping that have changed the marine shore and presented numerous health risks to the public. The Irish authorities have never pursued the charges. As a last resort, James and eleven others plaintiffs turned towards the European Commission, which recognised the existence of a series of violations of the EC’s waste legislation. After several warnings went unheeded, the case was sent to the EU’s Court of Justice, which brought proceedings against Dublin. 2- Doris Andelova lives in the Czech Republic, in the heart of what use to be called «The Black Triangle ». In this area bordering Germany and Poland, a large rehabilitation project of major significance has been initiated and supported by the European Union, allowing the region to make a new start and its inhabitants to take on a new lease of life. 3- For the Polar explorer Alain Hubert, climate change is far from being an abstract phenomenon. Three years ago, his journey across the Artic was stopped by the abnormal melting of the ice-barrier. Since then as the head of the International Polar Foundation, Alain Hubert has decided to make the wider public aware of the issues behind climate change and the importance of the struggle against climate change launched by the European Union. 4- The Slovene company Gorenje is a heavyweight on the European market in the manufacture of household, white goods. In the ’90’s, anticipating the entry of Slovenia into the EU, the company aimed at manufacturing goods fully meeting environmental EU rules and even exceeding them. An economic and strategic choice, which today acts as the motor behind their profitability.
