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. With her background in business management, law and philosophy, Minnesma has worked at Royal Dutch Shell, Greenpeace, as well for the government and her foundation, unlike most doesn't rely on endowments or contributions but on the profits it makes from its activities. It advocates a circular economy, promotes renewable energy and believes that the Netherlands can be completely converted to renewable energy by 2030.
