Climate Jamboree comprises a series of lead up events running through June to October 2018, and culminating in a Grand Finale (1-3 November 2018) The lead up events are designed to start an engagement process for youth from different disciplines and different walks of life with sustainability thinking, which would get honed further in the Finale.
About the Event
Environmental jurisprudence in India has been evolving for many years now. This needs to be expanded to cover issues related to climate change and several aspects of sustainable development. In fact, the Agenda 2030 document emphasizes the need to look at all SDGs in an integrated, indivisible manner. But, is our judicial system attuned to this approach?
The ‘Legal Eyes’ is an attempt to evaluate the readiness of the Indian judicial system to promote sustainable development.
The activity is open for all LL.B students from India and involves identifying appropriate judgment/s of the Supreme Court of India & High Courts relating to the environmental/social protection and critically analyze them from the SDG perspective.
What do you have to do
Identify an appropriate judgement of the Supreme Court of India/High Courts relating to environmental/social protection.
