This weekend we’ll be doing something a little different with the UK Parliament YouTube channel.

On Saturday 110 citizens, selected to reflect the makeup of the UK population, will begin a process to give Parliament and Government an understanding of what people across the UK really think about how the UK can reach the target of net zero emissions by 2050.

To engage as wide an audience as possible, presentations to the Climate Assembly UK will be live streamed on the UK Parliament YouTube channel and via the Climate Assembly website.

Over four weekends between January and March, members of the Assembly will listen to a wide range of views and evidence and make up their minds on issues such as how we travel, what we buy and how we heat our homes.

During this first weekend of January 25-26, the Assembly will discuss and agree what underpinning principles they believe should steer the UK’s approach to addressing climate change.

The Assembly was commissioned in June last year by six parliamentary, cross-party committees to give MPs and the Government an understanding of how people think the UK should address climate change, and how it can meet the 2050 net zero emissions target agreed by Government and Parliament last year. The conclusions and recommendations the Assembly reach will be published in a report to Parliament in April.
