Engaging citizens in shaping policies fit for the future: from COVID-19 to climate emergency

Curated and produced by the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA)

If, as many have argued, the COVID-19 crisis represents a critical juncture, state and non-state actors must work together to ensure a recovery that considers broader objectives than growth alone. 

The discussion will especially focus on the broad public engagement and structured deliberation that can underpin sustained collective change across government, business and civil society. Learning from the growing number of citizens’ assemblies and conventions on climate action around the world, the aim of this global table is to highlight ways that governments at different levels can build a social and political mandate for climate policies through deliberative democratic processes and other participatory methods.
