City and county governments that are not adequately addressing the climate crisis need to be called to account for failing to protect the basic human rights of their citizens, and who better to do this than the young people whose rights are being, and will be, most dramatically impacted?
Enter Youth Climate Courts, a program where you can get together with other young activists (ages 14-26) and participate in real, local human rights trials about climate change. These youth courts contain youth judges, youth prosecuting attorneys and youth jury members. Youth leaders organize these trials and summon members of local government to attend and explain themselves against charges that that government is failing to adequately protect the basic human and constitutional rights of its citizens, especially of the children, in face of the threats of climate change.
