Abstract: Is administrative law capable of effectively addressing the complex environmental challenges of our time? The book revolves around this research question by following the evolutionary pathways of environmental law relating to the sustainability agenda. The study draws concentric circles exploring the role of participation in shaping environmental law and governance (focusing on the Arctic, the ocean, and indigenous views). The concentric circles develop into a helicoidal structure that brings forward the discourse of environmental participation, extending it from a theoretical reflection to a methodological approach. Gratitude, reciprocity, and interconnectedness with nature are the values that inspired the book.
