Trends in Climate litigation

Climate change is one of the most fundamental problems of humanity and international climate negotiations and lawsuits against governments and companies for their climate policies are taking place more frequently than ever. But are we able to follow them? As knowledge is power, our environmental law team is hosting a series of 4 workshops during June and July to empower young people to become more involved in the international and European climate regime and provide them with the knowledge needed and bring them in contact with experts working on the field. The workshops will cover topics of fundamental international environmental law, public participation & environmental impact assessment as well as different angles of climate litigation and its current developments. Certificates will be given to the participants who attend 75% of the workshops (minimum 3 out of 4).

What you can expect

We aim to build capacity on the basic knowledge of international environmental law and include young people with no legal background in the climate movement. Through our 3rd workshop, we aim to provide a better understanding of public climate litigation having as guest speaker Filippo Fantozzi, Legal Associate in the Climate Litigation Network of Urgenda. Urgenda is one of the most widely discussed climate litigation cases against States. Through this workshop, participants will learn more about climate lawsuits against public actors from an expert, who is involved in one of the most influential cases of the climate litigation movement.

The 3rd workshop is going to take place online on the 4th of July at 16.30.
