A European network for sharing best practice on the design and implementation of Climate Assemblies
The Knowledge Network on Climate Assemblies (KNOCA) is an initiative of the European Climate Foundation, as a ‘go to’ place for those seeking considered, rigorous and widely-sourced input on the design and implementation of Climate Assemblies. KNOCA strikes a balance between academic quality, practical application, impact and accessibility.
Climate Assemblies are increasingly being used in a variety of different European countries at different scales of governance to inform policy responses and social action on climate change. Appetite is growing in countries that have not yet used such processes to explore the possibility of doing so, and to draw on existing experiences and models. As a result of growing and diverse practice, the knowledge and expertise of policymakers, academics, and civil society actors is increasing in the use of such innovative approaches. KNOCA will bring together this varied expertise to explore challenges in the design and application of Climate Assemblies and promote best practice for those organising and advocating for Climate Assemblies.
How to join KNOCA?
