Direct democracy, Citizen participation, Environment, Policy-making and Legislation, Representative democracy
Seattle , US
We are a group pushing to establish the first Climate Assembly in the USA. Legislative efforts in the USA to combat climate change have fallen short time and time again; we believe it's time to let the people decide what they are willing to do to fight the greatest problem our country and the world have ever faced. Assemblies have been very successful in Ireland, Germany, France, and the UK—we want to bring this new form of direct democracy to the United States.
