Citizens' assemblies at a local scale: lessons for community engagement projects

Citizens’ assemblies may be as old as democracy itself, yet, they have received increasing attention in recent years.

Together with Sarah Allan, Head of Engagement at Involve UK, and Professor Graham Smith of the University of Westminster, we'll be talking about the learnings from the recent climate assembly and how to translate these on a council/city level.

22 October, 11.45am - 12.30pm (UK time)

Moderator:
Lora Botev, Business Development Manager UK

Guests:

Graham Smith is Professor of Politics and Director of the Centre for the Study of Democracy, University of Westminster, UK. He is a specialist in democratic theory and practice, with particular expertise in new forms of public participation in political decision making. He was one of the organisers of the Citizens’ Assembly on Brexit which proved influential in the development of citizens’ assemblies in the UK.

Sarah Allan is Head of Engagement at Involve UK. Her work has included a number of high profile citizens' assemblies. She was Design and Facilitation Lead for the Citizens' Assembly on Brexit (2017). Sarah also led the delivery of other high profile citizens' assemblies, including Climate Assembly UK (UK Parliament, 2019-2020), National Assembly for Wales Citizens' Assembly (2019) and the Citizens' Assembly on Social Care (UK Parliament, 2018).
