From 2020 to 2022, our project is funded by the European Commission via the Internal Security Fund – Police. Waste traffic, trafficking of endangered species and illegal logging are the three priorities identified by the European Union.
Environmental crime knows no borders. Collaborating on a transnational level is fundamental to the strategy of our European project. Supported by the French National Gendarmerie, represented by the Central Office Against Environmental and Public Health Crimes (OCLAESP), the Italian International Affairs Institute (IAI) think tank, the French National School for the Judiciary (ENM) and the Hungarian and Slovak police forces, Ambitus combines expertise and experience from a total of 15 European countries and two international agencies. Our multidisciplinary approach brings together all the key players working to tackle these offences, the devastating effects of which impact us all (police officers, magistrates, academics, journalists, NGOs and the general public).
Our integrated approach with an international dimension makes it possible to cover a broad range of activities in the fight against environmental crimes.
We are committed to developing our action based on the aspirations of European citizens, whose lives are directly impacted by environmental crime. Our #DontDoAnything campaign aims to raise awareness of this phenomenon among the general public, via videos on themes such as poaching and waste traffic.
