Climate (In)justice: How Climate Change Affects Children’s Access to Justice: CFJ-EN Annual Seminar

About

 

As we confront the intertwined crises of climate change, economic instability, and geopolitical turmoil, the vulnerable situations in which children find themselves in are ever more evident. This year, the 3rd Child Friendly Justice European Network Annual Seminar, organised in partnership with Terre des hommes Foundation (Tdh) and CICS.NOVA, will explore how climate change places structural pressures on justice systems which should be designed to respect the rights of children. Specifically, it will look at how strategic climate litigation and enforcing children’s right to freedom of association and peaceful assembly can help guarantee their access to justice within the context of the climate crisis.​

By bringing together academia, practitioners, and policymakers, we will foster dialogue and exchange knowledge on transforming justice systems to better meet the needs and rights of children. This event sets the stage for the upcoming World Congress on Justice with Children in June 2025 and builds on key recommendations from Terre des Hommes’ 2023 report, "Climate In-justice for Children: How climate crisis affects access to justice and children’s rights."​

Join us as we look towards a just future where all children can thrive despite the challenges of our changing world.
