In this mini-series, we'll be discussing the Climate Assembly in
the UK - what happens when 100 randomly-selected ordinary citizens
are given time and space to debate UK climate change policy.
In this first episode, I talk about what a Citizens' Assembly is, and some of the pros and cons of this democratic institution. Next time, we'll discuss this specific assembly, the report and recommendations they came up with.
The Climate Assembly UK released its 556-page report on Thursday 10th September, and it can be read in full here: https://www.climateassembly.uk/
