The Court will be delivering Grand Chamber rulings in the cases of Verein KlimaSeniorinnen Schweiz and Others v. Switzerland, Carême v. France and Duarte Agostinho and Others v. Portugal and 32 Others on 9 April 2024.

The case Verein KlimaSeniorinnen Schweiz and Others v. Switzerland concerns a complaint by a Swiss association and its members, who are a group of older women concerned about the consequences of global warming on their living conditions and health, that the Swiss authorities are not taking enough action to mitigate climate change.

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

The case Duarte Agostinho and Others v. Portugal and 32 Others concerns the current and future severe effects of climate change, which the applicants attribute to the respondent States, and which they claim impact their lives, well-being, mental health and the peaceful enjoyment of their homes.
