The Leeds Climate Change Citizens’ Jury

The Leeds Climate Change Citizens Jury was commissioned by the Leeds Climate Commission, where Shared Future was invited to organise and facilitate the process. Project design was overseen by a project oversight panel made up of a hugely diverse group of key local organisations from the City Council to Extinction Rebellion and youth climate strikers to the Chamber of Commerce. They met parallel to the Citizens’ Jury to agree how best to recruit the participants and who the commentators or expert witnesses should be that present to the jury.

This was the question presented to 25 randomly selected residents from across the Leeds city region was:

“What should Leeds do about the emergency of climate change?”
