This course provides general insights on the intersection of protecting the right to participate in cultural life and climate change litigation.

It is no surprise that climate change and its devastating impacts can leave marks on communities and affect cultural practices and more importantly people's way of life. Cultural Rights are recognised in International Law and there are various international and domestic mechanisms that have sought to develop the right to participate in cultural life over the years. The recognition of the interconnection between the environment and cultural life is one which is demonstrated clearly through litigation relating to Indigenous Peoples rights.

In light of the already devastating effects of extreme weather changes and both the foreseeable and unforeseen impacts on the environment caused by climate change, the continued protection of cultural life warrants attention.

Climate change litigation is increasing in response to inadequate government policies and actions by various industries. It's likely that such cases will continue to increase. This course intends to investigate how the right to participate in cultural life intersects with climate litigation both on an international and national level.
