Listen on

Episode notes

In this second episode of our climate justice series, we explore what the growing strategic litigation movement can mean for climate justice. We speak to Tessa Khan, a leading environmental and human rights lawyer who played an important role in winning landmark court cases, won the 2018 Climate Breakthrough Award and recently set up a new NGO called Uplift. We hear about her decision to focus her fight on a just and fossil fuel-free UK. How is she taking one of the most powerful industries in the world and why does she think we will win? And how to come together across movements - from environmental activists to former oil workers- to build true climate justice?  This and more in episode 2!
