GDA 5: The Right to a Healthy Climate
Marking the 5th anniversary of the Global Day of Action for Climate Justice, we have chosen the theme: The Right to a Healthy Climate. We chose this theme partly because the UN has recently been approaching climate change from a rights-based perspective but also because of the groundbreaking case that has been heard in the ECHR brought by a group of teenagers from Portugal against all the members of the EU on this very basis.
This year, the York Law School are organising a panel discussion intertwined with a Q&A element. We have invited excellent speakers from a range of backgrounds to provide expertise on the avenues that impact The Right to a Healthy Climate. We encourage you to join us on the 17th of November.

Additionally, some individuals who are part of the York Law School have written interesting articles that provide us with further insight on The Right to a Healthy Climate. Keep an eye out for these fascinating blog posts that will be published here in the lead up to the 17th of November 2023.
