Finland’s Citizens’ Jury on Climate Action took place in April 2021. It differs from climate assemblies in a number of ways, including its size, duration and remit. The Jury took place over two-and-a-half days and involved 33 randomly-selected citizens. They were charged with assessing the fairness and impact of 14 potential measures to be included in the new national medium-term Climate Change Policy Plan.
Katariina Kulha and Maija Setälä from the University of Turku and organisers of the Jury, and Heta-Elena Heiskanen from the Ministry of the Environment which commissioned the initiative, will be in conversation with Graham Smith, Chair of KNOCA, and taking questions from the audience.
An English summary of the Citizens’ Jury on Climate Action is available on the KNOCA website.
