According to the young people, it is against the European Convention on Human Rights not to pursue a more ambitious climate policy.

Which part of the European Convention the state is considered to have violated is not clear from DN's article.< /p>

Despite the fact that the convention lacks provisions on carbon dioxide emissions and other climate-related issues, similar activist groups have actually won lawsuits in Germany and the Netherlands, where both countries' left-wing courts have ordered the government to “tighten climate targets”, according to DN.
