The European Union Is Being Sued For Not Taking Enough Action Against Climate Change

By Aimee Lutkin

A litigation action against the European Union was announced by a group of ten families, which is collectively called the People’s Climate Case. They come from Portugal, Germany, France, Italy, Romania, Kenya, Fiji, and the Sami Youth Association Sáminuorra. 

The group is being represented by environmental lawyer Roda Verheyen, and states that their "homes, livelihoods, traditional family occupation and culture" are all being devastated by climate change and it's the EU's responsibility to take strong action and prevent further destruction from rising temperatures and sea levels.
