Kyne Introduces Mat dos Santos


Kids are mad, and they’re willing to take it to court.

Children from across the planet have been sounding the alarm about the climate crisis, fearful that their future will be unlivable. And now they’ve got a lawyer on their side.

Mat dos Santos, Managing Attorney at Our Children’s Trust, works with young clients to bring climate litigation to federal and state courts in the United States, and tribunals across the globe. 

We talked to Mx. dos Santos about how all other rights hinge on the right to a safe climate and policy built on the best available science.
