This workshop will be held at European Central Time (CET)

Do climate assemblies, backcasting and scenario-based planning make a pair?
– an exploration of possibilities and boundaries.

Can backcasting and scenario planning be used within the framework of Climate Assemblies? If so, what could the process look like? Would it bring new perspectives and recommendations from the assemblies? Would it bring new ways of interaction between science, citizens, and decision makers?

In this workshop we will explore methods of backcasting and scenario-based planning within the framework of Climate Assemblies. Through experts on foresight methods and climate assemblies and practitioners’ experiences and insights this workshop will explore the possibilities and boundaries of the use of backcasting and scenario-based planning in Climate Assemblies.

Together we will produce a list of pros and cons and considerations based on all our experiences and insights.

The workshop is aimed at practitioners at all levels from the fields of backcasting, scenario-based planning and climate assemblies as well as climate scientists and policy actors.
