Combating climate change and protecting human rights cannot be considered separately. Systemic action is urgently needed to protect our planet and its people. For the first time in history, the world’s highest court has been asked to clarify the legal obligations of states to protect our climate for present and future generations. This "advisory opinion“ could initiate a global turning point in the fight for climate justice, compelling states to act!
We have until January 22nd to demand that states and international organizations take this once in a generation opportunity to protect our human rights from the existential threat of the climate crisis, and submit progressive cases to the ICJ.
