Peter Bryant, (co-director, Shared Future CIC) plans, designs, and facilitates ‘Citizens Juries’.

This deliberative method is increasingly used to engage public participation and knowledge in the policy process. Peter has facilitated over twenty ‘Citizens Juries’ on a wide range of questions, and is currently leading the development of Climate Citizens Juries. After facilitating the pioneering ‘Leeds Climate Change Citizens’ Jury’, Shared Future CIC is now organising similar juries in Lancaster and other localities.

  • How can local citizens shape local government climate action policies and plans?
  • What are Citizens Juries? How do they work?
  • What are the experiences of Climate Citizens Juries so far?
  • What might this mean for the future of citizenship, democracy and participation?

All who have an interest in citizen participation, local policy and questions of climate and sustainability are welcome to come to the seminar.
