In her new book Nu is het aan ons (Now it’s up to us), Eva Rovers makes the case that climate policy should not be left to politics alone. A many-headed monster like climate change requires a many-headed approach. In the book, published in Dutch, Eva Rovers takes her readers on a journey across several European citizens’ assemblies to show that citizens are crucial to tackling the biggest challenges of our time – especially safeguarding the planet we live on. 

Eva Rovers is a writer and co-founder of the Dutch platform for Climate Citizens’ Assemblies ‘Bureau Burgerberaad’. In 2021 she coordinated the European collective learning project: ‘Climate Citizens’ Assmeblies – Learning with, from and for Europe’. The conclusions of this project can be found at
