The Youth Climate Court of Newfoundland & Labrador is a non-profit organization that calls for the accountability of city and county governments that are not adequately addressing the climate crisis. The YCC-NL is mainly comprised of young people whose rights are being most dramatically impacted by climate change.  The YCC will call the city or county government to court for failing to protect the basic human rights of their citizens with youth judges, youth prosecuting attorneys and youth jury members to put their local city or county government on trial for not living up to its human rights obligations. Youth leaders will then organize a trial and summon members of that government to attend and explain themselves in open Youth Court against charges that that government is failing to adequately protect the basic human and constitutional rights of its citizens, in face of the threats of climate change.
