We are not just raising our voices in the streets, we are raising our voices in court. We, the youngest generation, are taking legal action to get our governments to protect the atmosphere for our future. Youth have filed legal action in every state and federally in the US and in the Ukraine. Plans to file suits in Uganda, Canada, Pakistan, India and Australia are in place. Youth plaintiffs standing up to their governments to hold them accountable to protect the atmosphere as a public trust for future generations.
Whether you are from the United States or not, your voices matter. The US is blocking significant international and national action to reduce our fossil fuel use needed to restore balance in our atmosphere. We can break through! Already a Texas court has agreed that the atmosphere is part of the public trust, deserving protection.
Sign on here to help support this effort as a FRIEND OF THE COURT!
The iMatter TRUST legal action requires the Federal Government to prepare and adopt a climate recovery plan that reduces emissions by 6% per year in order to restore CO2 balance in the atmospheric by the end of the century.
Sign on and you’ll be added to the brief. We will keep you informed about the progress of our cases!
- President of the United States
I, the undersigned, as a member of the youngest generation alive on the planet today (or on behalf of them), declare that I have a right to my future on a sustainable planet. This right is being threatened by the ongoing overuse of fossil fuels. I believe that if our government does not take immediate action to reduce the amount of carbon in our atmosphere, I will suffer economic, physical, emotional, and spiritual damage.
