Around the world, citizens entrust elected politicians to make laws and policies that keep them safe, healthy, and prosperous. But what happens when these elected officials fail to do what is needed to address problems that threaten our very survival?
This webinar will explore whether another way is possible: letting citizens decide. Citizens’ assemblies (CA’s) are increasingly emerging as promising alternatives that empower ordinary citizens to develop solutions to the climate and ecological emergencies. It will explain how CA’s work and present evidence that shows citizens often make better and bolder decisions than their elected representatives do.
