The German Citizens’ Assembly on Climate is the most recent of a number of national level climate assemblies in Europe. What distinguishes the German Assembly from its predecessors is that it was commissioned by civil society organisations with the primary purpose of influencing the federal election and the government coalition negotiations that follow. This learning call will interrogate the motivation, commissioning, organisation and impact to date of the German Citizens’ Assembly on Climate, drawing out innovations in practice and lessons for future practice.
Percy Vogel from the Citizens’ Climate Protection Initiative which initiated the Assembly and Julia Hoffman from ifok, the lead facilitator, will be in conversation with Graham Smith, Chair of KNOCA and taking questions from the audience.
