DUTY OF CARE – THE CLIMATE TRIALS
Roger Cox dares to do the impossible: He is the first lawyer ever to sue the Dutch government and the oil giant Shell on behalf of 17,000 citizens. The reason? Both are knowingly putting the climate and thus our future at risk – and that should be punishable according to Roger Cox. The award-winning docu-crime follows him as he sues powerful states and corporations for climate protection. The two landmark rulings led to an international wave of successful court cases and show a new, powerful path for climate protection.
