Climate Change on Trial

On March 19, 2019, Room for Discussion will host an interview on climate change and the law, examining how climate change is posing new challenges for our legal systems, policy-making, and  how it is being addressed in our courtrooms. We will discuss recent cases in the Netherlands such as Urgenda and Milieudefensie’s lawsuit against Royal Dutch Shell. To help us discuss this topics, we are joined by Prof. Dr. Joyeeta Gupta — co-chair of UN Environment’s Global Environmental Outlook-6 and Professor at the University of Amsterdam— and Freek Bersch — Spokesperson for Economy at Milieudefensie — will join us as we discuss these topics in a one-hour long interview, hosted on our stage at “Room for discussion”.
