Through a series of collaborative experiments with partners, the UK Energy Research Centre’s (UKERC) Public Engagement Observatory is actively exploring how new approaches to mapping diverse forms of public engagement across systems can make a difference in practice to energy and climate-related decisions, innovations and new forms of participation.

In this webinar, the Observatory team presented the findings of one such experiment that explored how the Observatory’s approach might contribute to a Citizens’ Panel on Home Energy Decarbonisation. They then considered implications for future research and practice of deliberation, citizens’ assemblies and other forms of participation. This was followed by a panel discussion involving reflections from the organisers (the Climate Citizens project and the Climate Change Committee) and facilitators (Shared Future) of this specific deliberative process, before opening up to wider audience questions and answers.
