Young Climate Activists Sue 32 Countries 

Six Portuguese young climate activists are taking 32 countries to the European Court of Human Rights for not doing enough to stop global warming. The young activists are aged 11 to 24 years and they decided to take action after seeing the massive wildfires in Portugal in 2017. They claim that the current climate policies are not adequate and that such policies violate their human rights. The hearing was scheduled to take place in Strasbourg, France on September 27.
