Note by Alain Cornec in the report of the High Council for Children, Family and Age (HCFEA ) on “PARTICIPATING AND LISTENING to CHILDREN’S VOICES IN THE ECOLOGICAL TRANSITION”.

On pages 35 and 97 of this report, Alain Cornec analyzes the recourse of 16 young people before the UN against five States that are not doing enough to combat global warming.

More specifically, he explains:

  • the foundations of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) invoked by the petitioners (I);
  • the procedure under the 3rd additional protocol (II);
  • and the practical lessons to be drawn from this action (III).
