THIS IS A TEST. PLEASE RESPOND IF YOU LIKE. ALL FEEDBACK WELCOME.

This is a Citizens’ Assembly started in January 2020 which has now moved online: The Citizens' Assembly on Climate Change

It is officially linked to Parliament. This Citizens’ Assembly on climate change has been commissioned by six House of Commons select committees, including the Environmental Audit Committee (of which I’ve been a member), Treasury, Transport and Business and Energy.  

This link takes you to an article by Caroline Lucas in the Green Party’s membership publication: GREEN WORLD: THE ROLE OF CITIZENS ASSEMBLIES

As the assembly has moved online, is there now evidence that deliberative democracy needs to work online. Here we would like to consider the article:

No going back: Rebuilding a post-coronavirus world

It is proposed that parliament urge the government to create a sustained programme of Citizens' Assemblies and online Deliberative Democracy
