Rewatch the first session of the Citizens' Assembly of Scotland from Saturday 26 October.
Rewatch the second session of the Citizens' Assembly of Scotland from Sunday 27 October.
100 citizens. 6 weekends between autumn 2019 and spring 2020. 3 topics to discuss. 2 Conveners. 1 Citizens' Assembly of Scotland.
The Citizens’ Assembly of Scotland is coming together to address the following 3 questions:
What kind of country are we seeking to build?
How best can we overcome the challenges Scotland and the world face in the 21st century, including those arising from Brexit?
What further work should be carried out to give us the information we need to make informed choices about the future of the country?
These are included within the Remit and Terms of Reference for the Assembly, which sets out how the Assembly will operate. Conveners have agreed a Memorandum of Understanding, setting out the arrangements in place to allow the Citizens’ Assembly to deliver on it’s remit independently.
