Millennium Kids have climate change and reducing our collective carbon footprint on our agenda. We have met with politicians, undertaken behaviour change projects and spoken up about the future we would like to see.
In 2020 we have been discussing an exciting opportunity to work with Emeritus Professor, Janette Hartz-Karp, on the world’s first Citizens’ Assembly for young people.
We would love to invite you to a workshop with Janette Hartz-Karp and the Millennium Kids team to see what this means on:
Sunday 16th February from 11.00am – 12.30pm.
Through the Citizens Assembly we’d bring together a diverse range of young people,
10-18 years, to deliberate over what a changing climate means and how we can create a plan of action and deliver the plan to government and stakeholders.
A Citizens’ Assembly is a highly effective method of applying deliberative democracy. They consist of gathering a highly diverse group of people to examine broad policy objectives and propose local solutions for climate change mitigation.
Volunteers and Facilitators Needed:
If we are to make this happen we would require a dedicated team to make this four day, youth led event work. We have several challenging tasks ahead that must be met for the event to be completely legitimate. These include determining a sampling method to randomly select a group of school-aged children, procuring experts to speak on climate-related topics, and ensuring that ample decision-makers are present on the concluding day.
Do you want to be a part of the action? If so, please join our discussion this Sunday.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend the session and get further details of the workshop program.
