GLOBAL LEGAL ACTIONS
Our Children's Trust is working to support youth and attorneys around the world to develop and advance legal actions to compel science-based government action on climate change in their own countries.
The success of our partners include Norway's successful adoption of a public trust-based constitutional climate amendment; Urgenda’s big court win in the Netherlands mandating specific national emission reductions; and the Supreme Court of Pakistan allowing young Rabab Ali’s constitutional climate case to proceed on behalf of the public and future generations.
We streamline our global work by cultivating relationships with partnering attorneys and youth who lead the efforts in their countries and to whom we provide legal, outreach, and communications support. Click on a country below to learn more.
