Irish Children and Young People’s Citizens’ Assembly on Biodiversity Loss publishes its report

May 2, 2023

On Earth Day, the Children and Young People’s Assembly on Biodiversity Loss in Ireland published its report. The Assembly ran over 2 weekends in October 2022 in parallel with the adult Citizens’ Assembly on Biodiversity Loss. Designed in collaboration with 9 young advisors aged 8 to 16, the Assembly brought together 35 randomly selected members aged 7-17 from across Ireland to explore, discuss and create 58 calls to action on how to protect and restore biodiversity.

One of the organisers of the process, Katie Read, had previously designed and delivered the engagement of children and young people alongside Scotland’ Climate Assembly. KNOCA is planning to work with Katie in the Autumn to lead a workshop and develop guidance on how best to involve children and young people in climate assemblies.

The report can be read on the Children and Young People’s Assembly on Biodiversity Loss website
