YOUTH v GOV

Documentary, Youth, Climate Change, Social 1h 50m 2020

YOUTH v GOV is the story of America’s youth taking on the world’s most powerful government, filing a ground-breaking lawsuit against the U.S. government. They assert it has willfully acted over six decades to create the climate crisis, thus endangering their constitutional rights to life, liberty, and property.

The Juliana plaintiffs represent the diversity of America’s youth impacted by the climate crisis. Hailing from across the country, they encompass cultural, economic racial, and geographic diversity, with many from marginalized communities, and their stories are universal. Their diversity speaks not only to the impacts of climate change but to the inclusion required if we are to build a better, more just future together. If these young people are successful, they will not only make history, they will change the future.
