Climate Law Suits as example for “fundamental right to a clean environment”

Lecture on fundamental rights, their individual enforceability and some climate law suits in Europe. Discussion about law as a means of protecting the climate. Reference to some examples where courts have taken innovative standpoints in favor of climate protection (e.g. Federal Administrative Court rejection of 3rd runway at Airport Vienna; District Court Bern: trespassing as a protest against climate policy as an act of civil disobedience). The aim of the workshop is to impart knowledge in relation to legal instruments, to record law / lawsuits as effective / complementary instruments of climate protection. !!
