Youth v Europe: Climate Change

We are crowdfunding to help a group of Portuguese children take a major climate change case to the European Court of Human Rights. In June of this year these children watched their district burn as a result of the worst forest fires in their country's history. The fires, which have been linked to climate change, claimed the lives of over 60 people.

Tragedies like this are becoming the new norm because governments in Europe and beyond are failing to make the necessary cuts to their greenhouse gas emissions. We are going to take this issue to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. And instead of taking the case against just one country, we are going to take our case against all of the major emitters which have signed up to the European Convention on Human Rights to push for greater reductions in greenhouse gases. Please support our crowdfunding campaign.
