This event will be held at Central European Time (CET)
How do key policy actors perceive the role of citizens assemblies for policy making on climate change in Europe? What are the perceptions on the key barriers and opportunities for greater use and stronger impact of climate assemblies? How to respond to different forms of reticence and resistance to climate assemblies amongst key climate governance actors?
Throughout the Spring 2022 the Knowledge Network on Climate Assemblies (KNOCA) has run four Knowledge Development Projects. Now the first project is ready to present its results concerning the knowledge and attitudes of climate policy actors towards Climate Assemblies. The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with climate policy advisers, civil society experts and decision makers on the findings, including the misconceptions and knowledge gaps, as well as barriers and strategic opportunities for Climate Assemblies in the context of the European climate policy. The panel will be followed by a discussion on the implications of the findings for the future work of KNOCA.
