The purpose of the Winchester District Young People’s Climate Assembly is to hear from everyone taking part using a process called deliberative democracy. Invited speakers will share their ideas on the actions that can be taken locally. Participants will discuss these proposals, reach consensus on the priorities for our area, and make recommendations on the actions that need to be taken. The findings of the Assembly will be shared with decision makers at Winchester City Council and Hampshire County Council as they develop their responses to the challenge of accelerating climate action following from The COP26 Summit.
The one-day event will be held at the University of Winchester Business School, West Downs on Saturday 20th November 2021 from 10.00 – 16.30hrs. Lunch and travel expenses provided.
