The current economic and political systems are laying waste to our planet, and fracturing our social relationships at the same time. We need a plan to restart our economy in a way that is not only sustainable, but just. Our allies are fighting hard for a Green New Deal, and we applaud their dedication. But what would Extinction Rebellion’s “Green New Deal” look like? It would include the demand for a Citizens’ Assembly! Politics as usual is not working – we need something different. Learn how a Citizens’ Assembly is a mechanism for change – and how bottom-up participatory democracy can reclaim local politics.

It’s more important than ever that everyday people across the city join together in fighting for the future we want. Showing up for each other today, builds a stronger tomorrow.
