The Kendal Climate Change Citizens’ Jury 2020

hat should Kendal do about climate change? That was the challenge tackled by a diverse group of local residents of Kendal during the summer and autumn of 2020. Commissioned by Kendal Town Council and facilitated by Shared Future, we believe the Kendal Climate Change Jury was unique in being both the first fully online Climate Change Jury in the UK and also by the way it mobilised citizens through a crowdfunding campaign. The support of many committed volunteers and supporting organisations has hugely contributed to its success.

The question raised to its 23 jury members was as follows:

“What should Kendal do about climate change?”

A 2022 blog is also available, describing what happened two years after the jury was completed here.
