I designed the novel geospatial sortition and stratification method for selecting participants for global citizens' assemblies - random selection via geographical location, weighted by human population density - which was used for the 2021 Global Assembly on the Climate and Ecological Crisis, as presented at COP 26. I am currently working with a GIS and population database expert on refining this method. (Tips on further funding avenues for our research are welcome).
