Your Citizens' Jury
Southwark’s climate emergency declaration includes the intention to ‘do all it can to make the borough carbon neutral by 2030’. It also committed the council to ‘develop a strategy, working with local stakeholders’. The declaration led to the decision to establish the Citizens’ Jury, who were part of the decision-making process and worked alongside us to find and agree solutions.
In November 2021, a representative group of 25 people from the local community came together to learn, discuss and make decisions on Climate Change in Southwark. During eight sessions, the Citizens’ Jury were given the opportunity to understand the climate emergency and hear from expert witnesses, form opinions and make a series of recommendations.
In this section you can:
