Campaigning and the Law: Learning from the Youth Climate Movement

What is the Youth Climate Movement? How can society impact the law? What does it take to stand up for something you believe in?

Summary

In March 2019 1.4 million young people across 140 countries stood up for their future. They organised, marched, advocated for change. Six months later, this movement had united even more young people with September’s global climate strike.

This workshop will unlock the power of collective action and how we can all make our voices heard. It will offer students a chance to interact with key voices in the climate movement from lawyers to campaigners for change while introducing them to issues surrounding the relationship between law and society.

This workshop will allow your students to explore:

  • The climate crisis
  • How to build a successful campaign
  • The relationship between law and social action.
