About Us







We are very happy to see the recent ruling by the European Court of Human Rights in favour of a group of Swiss women who consider that the Swiss authorities are not taking sufficient action to mitigate the effects of climate change. The Court found that the Convention encompasses a right to effective protection by the State authorities from the serious adverse effects of climate change on lives, health, well-being and quality of life.
