Youth File Lawsuit Against Norwegian Government over Arctic Oil

Greenpeace

OSLO, Norway - Today young people filed a constitutional climate lawsuit against the Norwegian government for allowing oil companies to drill for new oil in the Arctic Barents Sea, endangering young people and future generations with more climate pollution. The plaintiffs, Nature and Youth – the largest youth-led organization in Norway – and Greenpeace Norway, argue that Norway has violated citizens’ and future generations’ constitutional right to a healthy environment, joining youth around the world who are taking actions against their governments.
