Camden Council’s Citizens’ Assembly on “how the council and the people of Camden can help limit the impact of climate change whilst protecting and enhancing our natural environment” was completed last week.
It becomes the first Citizens’ Assembly to be carried out on climate crisis by a local authority – but is unlikely to be the last. A number of councils are either considering assemblies for a range of issues, or already in the process of developing their own.

Last month the House of Commons announced plans to hold its own climate assembly to inform government policymaking.
A citizens’ assembly on the climate emergency will take place this autumn to explore the fastest and fairest ways to end the UK’s carbon emissions.
