  • How to facilitate and howmoderate an asssembly
  • How to buildfollow onup thisan process.

  • Be aware, you can run assemblies either online or in-person; the latter tend to be more enriching experiences, but if you have the people and time resources to organise both, it will be more inclusive of everyone in your community. (Radical Inclusivity is one of the three tenets of a Citizens' Assembly). Combining both methods can be cost prohibitive, unless collaborating with a deliberative democracy ally who can share their resources and expertise, as it requires extra resources to those outlined in this guidance.

    Community Alliance Building

    Your local Community Assembly Project is a great opportunity to carry on working with your community allies and provides a channel that helps you start building alliances.
