Following tomorrow’s online event will be seven learning sessions, all live-streamed (and free), and featuring a variety of presenters on climate change and its wide-ranging implications. Learn along with the 80 Assembly members selected to participate in this groundbreaking deliberative democracy effort. (The meetings will be recorded so you can also watch them later.)
In addition to these meetings, individuals and organizations are invited to present their perspectives to the Assembly, either in person or in writing. You can sign up to present, and for other roles, at the WA Climate Assembly website.

What the Assembly is all about:
The Washington Climate Assembly is an exciting event in which 80 Washington residents will come together remotely in Winter 2021 to learn about, discuss, deliberate, and recommend climate change solutions for consideration by the State Legislature. Participants will be chosen through a lottery so as to accurately represent the state in terms of demographics such as age, race/ethnicity, geographic distribution, and political perspectives.
These everyday people will come together virtually to learn the facts around climate change; hear a variety of perspectives from experts, tribal representatives, and other stakeholders; consider potential actions; and discuss what they think should happen. Then, the Assembly will offer recommendations to elected officials and the wider public, which can be turned into laws.
