Communications and engagement

Our communications and engagement work has responded to the unique challenge of sharing the story of the very first Citizens’ Assembly to be held in Scotland. The work aimed to establish the value of deliberative democracy and promote awareness of the Assembly’s vision and recommendations.

Social media channels (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) provide avenues for informing stakeholders and the general public, making the Assembly’s work accessible and transparent. Livestreams appeared on Facebook and our YouTube channel in addition to the Assembly website accompanied by BSL and closed captions.

Our YouTube channel hosts a range of additional video content created around weekend meetings, including highlights videos featuring members’ reflections and distilling key evidence from expert speakers. The Convener posted regular blogs and updated our subscribers via email on the progress of Assembly work throughout.
