Grenoble, France. December 8, 2022 14:00 – December 8, 2022 17:45

These panels will be held at Central European Time (CET) in French and English thanks to simultaneous interpretation.

KNOCA will take part in the 21st conference of the International Observatory for Participative Democracy held in Grenoble from December 7 to 10, 2022 to discuss and reflect on the state of participatory democracy in the world.

With the Metropole of Grenoble and French practitioner Res publica, we organize two roundtables dedicated to citizen assemblies on climate. Starting with the recently held Convention métropolitaine pour le climat, members and organisers of European local and national processes will share their experiences. Crossing these points of view will offer the opportunity to consider the value of climate assemblies and how to articulate them better with policymaking.

The first panel will be facilitated by Julien Grenouilleau from Res publica and will welcome Graeme McCormick, member of Scotland’s Climate Assembly ; Françoise Manzo Kire, member of the Grenoble Metropole Climate Assembly and Lise Deshautel, co-founder of KNOCA.

Under the facilitation of Sophie Guillain, Res publica’s director, the second panel will bring together Helene Clot, Director for strategy, innovation and citizen relations at the Métropole de Grenoble ; Doreen Grove, Head of Open Government for the Scottish government and Graham Smith, chair of KNOCA.

Both panels require registration through this online form (1st panel registration / 2nd panel registration).

The full programme of the IOPD conference is available here. No webstreaming of the event could be arranged.
