On November 11, 2022, KNOCA co-hosted a session titled “Governance Innovation on Public Engagement: Learnings from Citizens Assemblies” as part of the Climate Law and Governance Day at COP27. This event, which was part of the UNFCCC 27th Conference of the Parties (COP), took place entirely online from 8:30 to 18:00 Egyptian Time (EET), with the KNOCA session scheduled from 13:20 to 14:30 EET.

The session, in collaboration with the Grantham Research Institute, LSE, explored the impact and lessons learned from national and global citizens assemblies in advancing climate action. Discussions centered on how climate assemblies could influence politics and garner public support for climate policies.
