This workshop will be held at 14-16:00 CET (Central European Time)
Knowledge curation – the art and practice of conveying relevant and nuanced information to (and with) citizens – is a central but also underexplored element of climate assemblies. The purpose of this workshop is to offer a platform for members to explore and share experiences, ideas, and reflections on best practice for selecting and presenting evidence in climate assemblies.
In this workshop, you will have the opportunity join a conversation on the development of KNOCA guidance for selecting and presenting evidence in climate assemblies and offer your input on current best practice, raise questions, and highlight overlooked areas.
Knowledge curation raises complex issues concerning the criteria for selecting relevant knowledge, the organisation and mandate of scientific councils, the role of citizens in curating the epistemic input, how to best communicate expert knowledge to citizens from different backgrounds, and more.
KNOCA is in the process of developing guidance for the selection and presentation of evidence in climate assemblies. In this context, the workshop will present a draft briefing paper that draws on existing literature and interviews with key organisers and members of scientific committees from five climate assemblies across Europe to present a state-of-the-art overview of current best practices and experience (good and bad) with different ways of selecting and presenting evidence in climate assemblies.
The workshop not only seeks to offer a platform for members to react to the main conclusions of the paper, but also to share experiences and reflections on knowledge curation beyond those discussed in the briefing paper and get involved in the later stages of the project.
