How climate activists are forcing systems change through the courts | earthrise



In this series of earthrise, we meet some of the people calling for systems change in the absence of meaningful global action on the climate crisis.  

Law is becoming a powerful tool for climate action. In this episode, we highlight some historic cases in which citizens and campaigners took on governments and multinationals and won.

We go to the United Kingdom, where three non-governmental organisations (NGOs) are filing a case against the government’s Net Zero Strategy. And, in Amsterdam, we learn how a series of court judgments have made legal history by forcing not only a state but also an energy giant to reduce emissions.

These cases are having a knock-on effect around the world, with more and more citizens turning to the law to hold polluters to account.
