KNOCA has identified three critical aspects of climate assembly practice that will be the main focus of our attention in coming months:

  • Framing climate within assemblies – how framing of remits, ordering and presentation of information and other process design features affect outcomes.
  • Designing for impact to affect policy and societal change – how commissioners and organisers can actively develop strategies to enhance different forms of impact.
  • Evaluating climate assemblies – whether supplementary approaches to evaluation are necessary to capture climate-relevant concerns.

KNOCA has launched Knowledge Development Projects (KDPs) and Mini-grants to actively work on these areas and to involve network members in the process of knowledge creation and exchange. KDPs and mini-grants will be orientated towards improving practice and policy making as well as network development activities.
