Can political leaders be taken to court over climate change impacts? Can the Indian Constitution recognize climate change under the right to live? A recent Supreme Court hearing explored these questions, sparking a national debate. The case ruled against the livelihood rights of an endangered bird, but what could laws against extreme weather and climate change mean for us?

Join us as we discuss this with Shibani Ghosh, Advocate on Record Supreme Court of India and a visiting fellow at the Sustainable Futures Collaborative, a New Delhi-based research organisation, as she shares her outlook on citizen-driven climate actions and the vital role of the National Green Tribunal. Could this be the beginning of a strong climate law for India?

Learn how this big decision could change India's legal system, support climate action, and lead to future climate laws.

Full transcript of the episode is available in English language.
