Citizens’ Assembly on the climate crisis
This summer, Camden is holding a Citizens' Assembly to decide how the borough should address the climate crisis.
Session 1: Climate Change and Camden
Session 1 took place on the 1st July, where our Assembly members heard about the science of climate change from Professor Mark Maslin (UCL) and about Current CO2 emissions in Camden and what might be able to be achieved by 2030 from Chris Dunham (Carbon Descent).

Session 2: Pathways to the future
On the 11th July, our Assembly members heard from 6 speakers about ideas and solutions which could be implemented in Camden at the Home, Neighbourhood and Council level.

Be sure to check back for further updates. The next session, Action for Change, takes place on Saturday 20 July.
We created an on-line platform for people to share their ideas about how we could change to tackle the climate crisis at different levels, our homes, our neighbourhoods, the Council and the country. Ideas collected through the platform will be shared with the Citizens’ Assembly during the last session (20 July).
The platform is now closed but you can visit the site and look through the comments: climate crisis online platform
