Climate & Legislation
October 16, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+0Free
The climate crisis is posing an ever increasing threat to fundamental human rights. Extreme weather events, melting polar ice caps, rising sea levels, floods and droughts are robbing people around the world of their livelihoods. Legislation that protects our climate and our future is therefore needed in order to achieve the 1.5 °C goal and the aims of the Paris Agreement. What strategies are needed to provide a legal basis for climate protection at both the global and the national level? Might a definition and recognition of the rights of nature be a way out of the climate crisis?
