24 Jan UK’s first climate assembly to begin this weekend
This weekend will see the first Climate Assembly’s featuring a broad range of 110 members of the public, meeting to discuss climate change and the issue’s surrounding it.
Sir David Attenborough will address members of the public who are taking part in the UK’s first climate assembly this weekend, organised by six UK selected committees. *
The TV presenter and naturalist will appear in Birmingham, where the 110 members are meeting to address how to reduce emissions to zero by 2050, to thank them for taking part.
Letters were sent out to 30,000 households across the UK inviting people to join a citizens’ assembly on climate change, late last year.
An estimated 2,000 people responded saying they wanted to be considered for the assembly, with the final 110 members were chosen by a computer system.
Of the assembly members, three people are not at all concerned, 16 not very concerned, 36 fairly concerned, 54 very concerned, and one did not know, organisers said.
Sir David Attenborough said, that he was grateful for the chosen people to give up their time to take part in a critical discussion.
The assembly will meet for four successive weekends, debating and determining ways to meet net-zero target on the third weekend.
The views, ideas and proposals from the assembly will be produced in a report in the spring, which will be considered by the select committees. However, there is no guarantee the Government will take up any of the proposals set forward.
