The Hawaii Supreme Court was honored to host the Intergenerational Climate Justice Moot Court Workshop. The workshop was held in conjunction with the 2016 International Union for the Conservation of Nature World Conservation Congress in Honolulu, Hawaii. Law students representing countries around the world gathered to share global perspectives on climate change.
“I’d like to thank the University of Hawaii’s William S. Richardson School of Law and all the sponsors that made this event possible,” said Chief Justice Mark Recktenwald. “It provided a unique opportunity for law students from different nations to come together to address a crucial and timely topic.”
In addition to the William S. Richardson School of Law, event sponsors included: Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University; World Commission on Environmental Law; IUCN Commission on Environmental, Economic, and Social Policy (CEESP); IUCN Environmental Law Centre; Foundation for the Philippine Environment; Australian Network of Environmental Defenders Officers (ANEDO); Kinetic Productions; and Damon Key Leong Kupchak Hastert.
On Monday, September 5, 2016, an edited version of the proceedings will be shown at the Hawaii Convention Center beginning at 8:30 a.m. Students who participated in the law panel will share their experience and perspectives, followed by a panel of international environmental jurists and academics.
