Environmental Law – Teaching about Mathur et al. in high schools

Event Summary:  The Ontario Justice Education Network is offering a free online session for secondary school teachers on Environmental Law – Teaching about Mathur et al. v. Her Majesty the Queen in Right of Ontario in high schools. This webinar features Alan Andrews, Climate Program Director at Ecojustice.

Seven young people, backed by Ecojustice, are suing the Government of Ontario for weakening its climate targets because it will lead to widespread illness and death, violating Ontarians’ Charter-protected rights to life, liberty, and security of the person.

As young people, the applicants say they and people like them will bear the costs of climate in action more than previous generations.
