In a landmark court case, 6 young climate activists take on 32 European nations

  • Six young activists from Portugal have taken 32 European governments, including the 27 EU member states, to court at the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in Strasbourg, arguing that their failure to take action on climate change violates human rights. This is the largest climate change case ever heard by the court.
  • If the activists win the case, the governments could be legally obligated to accelerate their efforts to address climate change. The court's judgment would act as a binding treaty, requiring countries to implement urgent climate mitigation measures.
  • The activists are expected to argue that the governments' current policies put the planet on track for a 3°C increase in global warming by the end of the century. The ruling by the ECHR would not only impact the 32 governments involved in the case but also influence domestic courts worldwide on climate change-related matters.
