Online workshop: "Upgrade our Democracy: Climate Assemblies and their impacts"
Extinction Rebellion's third demand calls on governments to create citizens' assemblies on climate and ecological justice and be led by their decisions. Citizens' assemblies are a form of participatory-deliberative democracy with a focus on consensus-building. They include randomly selected people from all walks of life and have had huge success in changing long-embedded policies in many countries.
Hear from Sonia Randhawa (from The Sortition Foundation) about citizens' assemblies: what they are, how they can help us fix the climate crisis, where they have already been implemented and their impacts.
Sonia is extremely engaging as a presenter and very knowledgeable. Her recent in-person workshops for XR Vic have really grabbed people. This is an opportunity for those who haven't been able to make it in person to hear Sonia share her wisdom online and get you thinking about the importance of XR's 3rd demand.
