The Oxford Citizens Assembly on Climate Change will involve a randomly-selected representative sample of 50 Oxford residents who will learn about climate change and explore different options to cut carbon emissions through a combination of presentations from experts and facilitated workshops. Oxford is the first city in the UK to deliver a citizens assembly on the topic of climate change.
As the evidence around man-made climate change is clear and overwhelming, it will be treated as a ‘given’ and the Assembly will not be asked to consider whether or not it is a reality.
Participants in the Assembly will consider measures to reduce Oxford’s carbon emissions to net zero and, as part of this, measures that reduce Oxford City Council’s own carbon footprint to net zero by 2030.
Ipsos MORI has been appointed to undertake the recruitment of participants and provide overall facilitation for the Oxford Citizens Assembly on Climate Change.
