About the Event
COP26 has shown the many faces of climate action - youth demonstrating with Greta Thunberg, negotiators searching for agreement on policy proposals, scientists presenting the grim results of their research. Another tool in the arsenal of tools to tackle climate change is litigation. Laws need to be developed, implemented, and enforced. Legal and judicial professionals need training. In this webinar we will talk about the successes and challenges of fighting for climate justice through the legal system.
