Higgins, a British barrister, led a decade-long campaign for “ecocide” to be recognised as a crime against humanity. She sold her house and gave up a high-paying job so she could dedicate herself to attempting to create a law that would make corporate executives and government ministers criminally liable for the damage they do to ecosystems.
How do we get clean air for children? We all have the right to breathe clean air but children are particularly vulnerable to the effects of illegal and harmful levels of air pollution and need protecting. The Clean Air Parents’ Network, supported by ClientEarth and the British Lung Foundation, is calling for the UK Government to fund emergency action to protect children from toxic air, where they learn and where they play.
Join us for a panel discussion and Q&A, supported by the Little House of Science, to learn more about how air pollution is damaging children’s health and how you can make a difference for young hearts and lungs.
