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

Are climate assemblies, backcasting and scenario-based planning compatible?
– 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 forms of interaction between science, citizens, and decision makers?

In this workshop we will explore how methods of backcasting and scenario-based planning can be integrated within climate assemblies – and, equally, how climate assemblies might be integrated within backcasting and scenario-based planning processes. Experts and practitioners on foresight methods and climate assemblies will share their experiences and insights, exploring the possibilities and boundaries of the integration of backcasting and scenario-based planning and climate assembly practice.

Our aim is to co-produce initial guidance in this area that can help shape the work of both communities of practice and consider further areas of collaboration that KNOCA can faciliate.

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.
