About the Seminar
As climate damage accelerates and is an increasingly visible threat to people alive today, as alternatives to fossil fuels multiply and as the moral culpability of fossil fuel companies becomes established, courts around the world are becoming willing to hear climate litigation cases and to issue orders requiring significant action. Join me for a lightning tour of some key global climate court cases.
