Kendal Citizens Jury on Climate Change
by Shared Future
What should Kendal do about climate change? That was the challenge tackled by a diverse group of local residents of Kendal during the summer and autumn of 2020.
Commissioned by Kendal Town Council and facilitated by Shared Future, we believe the Kendal Climate Change Jury was unique in being both the first fully online Climate Change Jury in the UK and also by the way it mobilised citizens through a crowdfunding campaign.
A People Powered response to the Climate Emergency
The support of many committed volunteers and supporting organisations has hugely contributed to its success. You can find out about the Kendal Climate Change Jury on their website.
Read the Recommendations of the Kendal Climate Jury.
The next step for Kendal’s Citizens Jury is a Recommendations Panel where organisations will be invited twice a year to share progress and best practice and develop partnership approaches to climate challenges.
