Event description
Mock Citizens Assembly #4 “Dry debate: How do we revive our water system in a changing climate?”

About this Event

Disrupting politics of fear and building a politics of hope by removing barriers to participatory, deliberative democracy, increasing representativeness and trust.

We acknowledge that First Nations people have been taking care of their country since time immemorial, are some of the first and worst affected by climate change and are leading powerful climate action. As Country has deeply changed due to colonisation and now due to global heating, including due to the unprecedented recent bushfires, we acknowledge the trauma and resilience of First Nations peoples.

Our heart goes out to all the people who have lost loved ones, seen their homes destroyed and been forced to flee communities, and to the billions of animals and their homes.

This mock Citizens’ Assembly is the last of four assemblies looking at how ordinary people can make policy decisions to tackle the climate crisis. As flames engulf our country, it is increasingly clear that politics as usual is failing us. The Coalition of Everyone invites you to experience how we can rebuild democracy.

Drought is again ravaging our landscape, with knock-on effects for wildlife, for fire, for food security. In an increasingly hotter world, we need to look at innovative ways of managing water. Can we keep the water in the land? Come and be part of the solution, learn how sortition works and how we can all contribute policy answers to this complex problem.
