Access the Power Point presentations below

The use of random selection and facilitated deliberation is assumed to generate high levels of equity and inclusion. Certainly, the participants in climate assemblies (and other deliberative mini-publics) are more diverse than most other political institutions. But do elements of climate assembly practice lead to disadvantages for particular social groups? Do we need to look more closely at the design and practice of climate assemblies through the lens of equity and inclusion?

This workshop will be informed by presentations from:

  • Elodie Jacquet, the Manager of Knowledge and Practice at Simon Fraser University’s Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue who has been commissioned by KNOCA to write a briefing on equity, inclusion and diversity in climate assemblies

  • Azucena Moran and Claire Mellier present preliminary findings of their KNOCA grant on the different ways in which disadvantage was experienced in the Global Assembly.
