Litigating for the Climate

In 2015 the Urgenda Foundation won a landmark lawsuit in which the Dutch government was ordered to increase its greenhouse gas emission reduction efforts. Since then, cases have been launched all over the world against insufficient climate policies, most recently also in Ireland (Friends of the Irish Environment v Ireland). Dennis van Berkel, legal counsel for Urgenda, will discuss how this new wave of climate litigation can be a powerful tool in global efforts to avert dangerous climate change. Free event at UCD Sutherland School of Law. Eligible for 1 hour CPD.
