Youth Climate Lawsuits Database

As impacts from climate change accelerate across the globe,  climate litigation has been on the rise and young people are increasingly at the forefront of climate justice.

Reflected by a steep rise in claims brought by youths, or on the basis of the rights of youth and future generations, young people are stepping up and using their voice to recast their futures.

In this section ClimaTalk brings you the Youth Climate Lawsuits Database (YCLD), a unique database where you can find both accessible case summaries and exploratory commentaries on the most interesting youth climate litigation cases.
