About the Citizens’ Assembly Demand

Extinction Rebellion's central demand:

Decide Together : We need change that is decided fairly and transparently. We need a Citizens’ Assembly on Climate and Ecological Justice.

A detailed explanation of XR's Citizens' Assemblies can be found on the XRUK website. It:

  • explains why our outdated system of electoral politics can't make the changes we need
  • describes the key "four pillars" of collaboration, independance, long-term thinking, and representation
  • introduces the concept of citizens' assemblies
  • gives some examples of citizens' assemblies around the world and what went well
