Discussing Climate Change with Future Generations Amsterdam Centre for European Studies (ACES) Symposium
Climate change is heating up Earth’s atmosphere as well as disputes about how to best respond to this global challenge. “Future generations” are increasingly making themselves heard in the European debate. This poses communicative and legal questions of which claims can be brought by and against whom, and on whose behalf. Speakers include the Future Generations Commissioner of Wales, Sophie Howe, the Dutch Ombudsperson for Future Generations Jan van de Venis, legal counselor for the Urgenda Foundation Dennis van Berkel and Dila Doğan of Youth for Climate.
