KENDAL CLIMATE CHANGE CITIZENS JURY

The Kendal Climate Change Citizens’ Jury has brought together 20 randomly selected people from across the town who reflect the diversity of the area, to answer the question ‘What should Kendal do about the emergency of Climate Change?’ This process will be the first climate change jury organised at town level and the first in the UK that is starting its work online.

Supported by a team of expert facilitators from Shared Future, the jurors have attended six out of a total nine online sessions where they are hearing from and questioning a series of expert commentators to help them answer the question. They are sharing ideas and opinions with each other and will ultimately draw up a set of recommendations for the town. An oversight panel made up of influential local organisations is overseeing the process to ensure it is fair and balanced. Oversight panel members have made a commitment to take action on the recommendations produced by the Citizens’ Jury.

The progress of the jury can be followed on Facebook or via the website, with interviews and videos of commentator presentations available to view. Sign up to our mailing list for the latest updates and have your say by completing our community survey.
