Citizens' Assembly on Climate Protection Designing an effective and social climate policy together Citizens' assemblies can produce broad social consensus as they consider potential conflicts of interest and develop concrete recommendations for action. The Citizens' Assembly on Climate Protection is intended to develop a climate policy that is supported by the citizens. The starting point among randomly selected citizens is the state of scientific research, objectives agreed in advance, and planned political steps. The Citizens' Assembly on Climate offers the space to determine which political measures are supported by well-informed citizens; the common good shall be in the foreground. The Citizens' Assembly on Climate succeeds the Citizens' Assembly on Democracy (www.buergerrat.de) which was conducted in 2019 and will take into account the experiences and results from various environmental policy participation activities and negotiation procedures in Germany and other european countries. The mandate should be given by the Bundestag.
