Do you have a right to a healthy planet? Dig into the movement to hold governments accountable for climate change inaction.

Since 2015, an unprecedented movement has been sweeping courts around the world. Groups of young plaintiffs are suing their governments for their inaction on tackling climate change. These suits argue that climate inaction violates their basic human rights. But what do human rights have to do with the environment? Shannon Odell examines our right to a healthy environment, food, health, and water.

Lesson by Shannon Odell, directed by Lorenzo Mercanti, AIM Creative Studios.
