The event promoting the Central European Professors’ Network coordinated by the University of Miskolc – Central European Academy was a conversation between one of the members of the above Network – Professor Bartosz Majchrzak (the Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński University in Warsaw, Poland) with a former judge of the Polish Constitutional Court Professor Zbigniew Cieślak and an expert of this court – assistant judge specializing in case law, Professor Aleksandra Syryt. The subject matter of the talks was the possibility to derive the so-called public subjective right to the environment being in an appropriate state, i.e. clean, healthy, ecologically safe or generally – optimal in terms of nature – from the Constitution of the Republic of Poland of 2 April 1997 (Journal of Laws No. 78, item 483, as amended; hereinafter the “Constitution”). In particular, an attempt was made to answer the following questions: 1) What is the constitutional (public) subjective right? 2) In which cases does the Constitution form the basis for deriving a subjective public right ? 3) Are there any grounds in the Constitution for distinguishing a public subjective right to a clean (healthy) environment ? 4) What legal consequences (would) arise if ‘everyone’s right to live in a clean (healthy) environment’ were provided for in the Constitution?
