Episode 4: Children's Rights

In the United States, major movements for social change – from civil rights to freedom of expression – have drawn inspiration, participation and momentum from children. The case of Juliana v. U.S., in which 21 young plaintiffs are suing the federal government over its knowing perpetuation of a fossil-fuel driven energy system that causes climate change, is based on the needs and rights of the youngest Americans. The latest episode of No Ordinary Lawsuit explores the legal evolution of children’s rights in the context of this case and those that came before.
