About this resource:

A group of children and youth have brought a mitigation claim to the Committee on the Rights of the Child. They argue that, as children, they are particularly vulnerable to the short and long-term impacts of climate change.

By not taking adequate action to reduce their GHG emissions, they are arguing that several governments are violating their rights to life, health and cultural life, as well as not acting in the best interests of the child.
