Democratic Renewal in Times of Crisis: On Citizen’s Assemblies

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. Citizen’s assemblies are increasingly emerging as promising alternatives that empower ordinary citizens to develop solutions to the climate and ecological emergencies. It will explain how citizen’s assemblies work and present recent experience from Ireland, France, and the United Kingdom.
Speakers include (more to be announced):
Darragh Conway – Climate change lawyer and XR activist
Clare O’Conner – Sustainability & Policy Officer at Native Events and former member of Irish Citizen’s Assembly
