Why this and why now?

The problem

Rising sea levels are swallowing up islands, extreme weather is damaging communities, and each year is increasingly hotter. Failure to act puts our entire livelihoods at risk. Climate denial is no longer an option, and the fossil fuel industry and governments need to be held accountable. Through strategic legal actions we are putting pressure on governments and corporations to take immediate steps to protect current and future generations. This growing, people-powered movement is refusing to let profit take over people and the planet. From fisherfolk to farmers, youth to seniors, let’s stand together and make the world a greener, more just, and safer place.

We all have a right to a stable climate, a healthy environment and a good life. But weak climate commitments by governments and companies won’t deliver in time, putting everyone’s lives and livelihoods at risk unless we increase the pressure now. To protect our climate, we need to deploy every tool in the toolbox. This includes using the law to hold governments and corporations legally and morally accountable and force them to accelerate the just phase-out of fossil fuels.
