Climate Citizens is a project run out of Lancaster University aiming to change how people engage with the creation of climate policy. We want to transform climate policy from something that happens to people, to something that happens with people.
In September 2020, Climate Assembly UK, the Citizens’ Assembly commissioned by Parliament, launched its findings. Recent months have also seen an upsurge of Assemblies and Juries at local level. These innovative deliberative events are re-defining how the public engage in climate decision-making. The next step is to move beyond one-off events and embed meaningful two-way communication between the Government and citizens into the policymaking process.
Climate Citizens aims to take that next step.
