We can see the effects of climate change everywhere - locally and globally.
It is high time to change our behavior to avert the worst.
Cartoons can make a convincing contribution by making grievances visible and comprehensible. They can inspire us to new ideas and solutions.
As part of the Cartoon Award a prize will be awarded in the category "Cartoon & Law" donated by Austrian law firm Haslinger / Nagele Rechtsanwälte
The Kaktus "Cartoon & Law" is dedicated to the topic
Who is primarily responsible for climate change and who are the most affected?
Does Law encourage or block the necessary transformation?
Do protests work and do they make a difference? Is there justice?
