FULLERS BOOK­SHOP, TUES­DAY, 5.30PM En­vi­ron­men­tal lawyer James Thorn­ton founded Client Earth, a le­gal char­ity tak­ing gov­ern­ments to court over en­vi­ron­men­tal mis­de­meanours. Tak­ing on a planet as a client is un­con­ven­tional, but the work of this 60-strong le­gal firm based in Lon­don demon­strates how in­di­vid­u­als can make a dif­fer­ence in a cor­po­rate-driven world. Thorn­ton and Martin Good­man, coau­thor of Client Earth, the book, will be in con­ver­sa­tion with for­mer Aus­tralian Greens leader Chris­tine Milne, with the fo­cus on how ci­ti­zens can use public in­ter­est law.
