This will never be forgotten

In September 2020, eight young school strikers launched a world-first class action on behalf of 5 million young people. They alleged Australia’s Environment Minister had a duty of care to avoid causing them climate harm by approving a new coal project.

The case made waves, not only around Australia, but across the world. 

An initial victory established the Minister owed a duty to avoid harming children. 

The Minister appealed and the Full Court of the Federal Court of Australia determined that such a duty did not exist. 

Today the children announce their decision not to appeal the case further.
