Community Assemblies provide a way for people to organise locally and to experience the power of deliberative democracy for making progress on issues that are most important to a community.
To choose our future, mitigate power and empower our communities, Community Assemblies are a powerful tool. This book gives you all you need to get the best from your experience.
Your community assembly can also demonstrate how XR's third demand for a Citizen's Assembly on Climate and Ecological Justice could work. Locally organised assemblies thus empower ordinary people to open converations with allies about our Third Demand and to talk to their politicians and local or unitary authorities on the opportunity for creating change via a citizen's assembly at a national level.
Community Assemblies can:
👥 Show what more inclusive democracy looks like
🤝 Strengthen our local alliances by collaborating with other organisations
👔 Keep up the pressure on politicians by inviting them along!
