Forthcoming hearings

European Commission Courtroom ECHR

The Court will be holding two Grand Chamber hearings on 29 March 2023.

The applicants in the case Verein KlimaSeniorinnen Schweiz and others v. Switzerland, a Swiss association and its members, complain that the State has failed to introduce suitable legislation and to put appropriate and sufficient measures in place to attain the targets for combating climate change.

The case Carême v. France concerns a complaint by an inhabitant and former mayor of the municipality of Grande-Synthe, who submits that France has taken insufficient steps to prevent climate change and that this failure entails a violation of the right to life and the right to respect for private and family life.
