February 2021: The European Court of Human Rights has dismissed a coordinated effort by 33 governments to overturn its October 2020 decision to fast-track our case on the basis of the “importance and urgency of the issues raised”. The governments also sought permission to argue that the case is inadmissible and therefore that the challenge to their climate policies should not be heard. The Court denied this request also. It did extend the deadline for governments to submit their defences to 27 May 2021.
