This episode of The Green Interview features Marjan Minnesma, the founder and director of the Urgenda Foundation in Amsterdam, which sued the Dutch state for its tepid record on greenhouse gas emissions. Urgenda was joined in the case by 900 citizens as co-plaintiffs in what Marjan describes as "crowd pleading." It won a court order directing the government to reduce the country’s emissions by 25 percent by the year 2030. The impact of that success has rippled around the world.
