Citizens’ assemblies bring together people from all walks of life to discuss an important issue.
They have been used to bring citizen perspectives into national policy making. In 2019-2020, a UK-wide citizens assembly on climate change was convened by the UK Parliament. In 2020, a Climate Assembly was held in Scotland.
Local councils have been using climate assemblies to bring in perperpectives from their local communities to help shape their plans around climate change.
We have been gathering reports made by climate assemblies on CAPE to make them easier to find, and to help raise awareness of how climate assemblies have worked in practice.
