hosted by

Extinction Rebellion London

Extinction Rebellion’s third demand is that Government must create and be led by the decisions of a Citizens’ Assembly on climate and ecological justice. But what is a citizens’ assembly? And why does Extinction Rebellion believe that it’s our only hope to create the radical change needed to deal with this emergency?

Come find out about this form of deliberative democracy with Linda Doyle, a member of XR’s national citizens’ assembly working group. She’ll discuss the steps involved, key examples and why citizens’ assemblies are key to giving the UK public the opportunity to respond to this crisis.

(Please note, this talk will be filmed for use within Extinction Rebellion and beyond. When you arrive, you will be asked for your consent to be filmed as part of the audience).
