People’s Climate Case

The real repercussions of climate change are already tangible – from Fiji to Langeoog. Ten families from Europe and from developing and emerging nations, who are all affected by the climate crisis, took their case to the Court of the European Union in 2018. They claimed the EU climate goals for 2030 were insufficient to avert the dangerous consequences of climate change, and therefore violated the basic human rights of the plaintiffs.
