Power to the people

Power to the people
We worked with the consultancy Britain Thinks on two pilot citizens’ juries to consider a range of climate policy options, with representative groups of local people in Cardiff and Penrith. Local MP Rory Stewart attended the Penrith event.

Our recommendations from these pilots, published in Power to the people (July 2019), influenced the design of the subsequent Climate Assembly UK, commissioned by six parliamentary committees and held in spring 2020. Our associate, Rebecca Willis was also one of the expert leads and we provided evidence on the links between resource efficiency and climate change, much of which was reflected in the assembly’s conclusions.
