Workshop on Governance Structures and Practices of Climate Assemblies

©BMK / Karo Pernegger (The Austrian Citizens’ Climate Assembly)

In this workshop we explored how climate assemblies are governed and share experiences and lessons learned about best practice.  The legitimacy of deliberative mini-publics, such as climate assemblies, partly depends on the trust policymakers, stakeholders, and the wider public have in the decisions made about their design and implementation. The form and quality of governance structures is critical.

We also discussed the applicability, strengths, and weaknesses of three overall models identified through interviews with key informants from the governance bodies of the first eight national level climate assemblies held to date.
