Climate justice is a growing global movement based on the belief that people have a right to a stable climate and deserve protection from the dangers of hazardous climate change.
Through the legal system you can target government authorities and force political leaders to fulfil their duties to protect people’s human rights. This guide provides an overview of what steps to take when bringing your government to court over its climate inaction.
Scientists agree that the Earth’s temperature is rising and human activity plays a central role.
All around the world there are increasing incidents of climate-fuelled heatwaves, floods, droughts, and extreme weather events. Every person has the right to a healthy environment – to life, health, food, and an adequate standard of living. Climate change poses a threat to these rights. But we can make a difference.
Using the law, individuals and communities are rising up against governments and corporations and leading the way towards sustainable economies. Climate justice matters because today’s generation is the last generation that can take steps to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. Governments are being made to listen and respond as people, from young to old and city-dwellers to farmers, are standing up and taking action.

As stated by (IPCC) said in a new assessment. With clear benefits to people and natural ecosystems, limiting global warming to 1.5ºC compared to 2ºC could go hand in hand with ensuring a more sustainable and equitable society. therefore, to achieve the target all parties must sincerely committed in ensuring all what it takes to reduce the extent of warming the globe in the name of development our planet earth needs to be conserve per se.

Life could not exist on Earth without trees because they produce most of the oxygen that humans and wildlife breathe. Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and release oxygen using the process of photosynthesis, 1st standard knowledge, people need know remember the basics, greed is good but not to include yourself as well, i mean to say for the personal betterment why settling and compromise with the life you have to live in the next upcoming years. #savetrees
I'd like to know how I can join activity to force the governments, including the Israeli government, to take action to close the plants and drastically reduce the use of vehicles (cars, airplanes) which harm the climate.
Basta parlare bisogna AGIRE! Perché nel 2078 forse avrò dei figli che mi chiederanno:"perché quando c'era ancora tempo i politici e i leader mondiali non hanno fatto nulla?" Semplice, dovevamo farlo NOI! A quanto pare gli adulti non sanno gestire questa situazione... Il venerdì 15 marzo dobbiamo saltare tutti scuola per sciopero e recarci alla sede comunale, per rendere giustizia alla terra! E non importa se i nostri genitori non ci appoggiano, perché ci stanno distruggendo il futuro sotto i nostri stessi occhi! Il potere è del popolo e se vogliamo possiamo salvarci! Grazie
This is amazing - thank you for creating this fantastic resource. We can all afford to be bolder and forge new paths for climate justice!
Not only human rights are violated but the rights of all beings in this planet are extremely violated and they should be considered as well. It is a matter of justice and ethics. TAKE ACTION NOW!!
Полностью согласна с вашими инициативами! Убеждена, что проблему безответственного отношения к изменениям климата и природопользования, необходимо решать на уровне международного права, обращаясь в арбитражные суды и применяя штрафные санкции в отношении нарушителей экологических норм, законов и постановлений.
