ClientEarth Live – Bringing human rights law to the fight for clean air

About this event

It is perhaps fitting that in a year where human health has been almost unfailingly headline news, in this webinar we will be focusing on our clean air work across the globe. Reflecting on the Dieselgate scandal five years on, we’ll be highlighting the links between climate and our health, and commenting on the connections between air pollution, human rights and social inequality.

In the last ClientEarth Live webinar of 2020, we present two of our Brussels-based colleagues, lawyers Ugo Taddei, Head of Clean Air and Irmina Kotiuk who will speak about how their team uses legal interventions, campaigns, advocacy and capacity building with partners to force governments into action against air pollution and hold businesses to account.

During the course of this one hour webinar, you will have an opportunity to submit your written questions for a brief Q&A.

Protecting the earth for and with its inhabitants

We use the power of the law to bring about systemic change: informing, implementing and enforcing the law, drafting and advising decision-makers on policy, building legal expertise, and ensuring citizens’ access to the laws that defend them.
