People's Climate Case

People’s Climate Case is the litigation action initiated by 10 families from Portugal, Germany, France, Italy, Romania, Kenya, Fiji, and the Saami Youth Association Sáminuorra. Their homes, livelihoods, traditional family occupation and culture are affected by climate change and they are taking the EU institutions to court to protect their fundamental rights and to prevent dangerous climate change.

The plaintiffs are accompanied by a broad range of NGOs, scientists and citizens, including Climate Action Network, Europe’s largest NGO coalition working on climate and energy issues, with over 160 member organisations in more than 35 European countries.

Behind the notion of "externalities", the often overlooked, real costs of coal power production are paid with human life, social, economic and cultural assets, ecosystem destruction and climate change. With its coal production facilities and three coal-fired power plants, the province of Muğla in Turkey has become an open-air laboratory that exposes the impacts and dangers of coal, and reveals its alternatives.

CAN Europe conducted a comprehensive study that indicates that we can put an end to the costs that are generally defined as “externalities” and disregarded in the coal-based energy production policies and investments, pointing out to available alternatives.
