Observing the Assembly

Covid-19 has caused several changes to the Assembly’s proceedings and for now we are not able to hold Assembly meetings in person: most or all of our meetings will take place online.

Principles of transparency and accessibility govern Scotland's Climate Assembly. All evidence sessions will be recorded so we would invite anyone who is interested to watch these sessions. Links to watch the evidence sessions will be available on the 'Meetings' page of this website. 

However, we will also be hosting virtual observer sessions where attendees will be able to learn more about the Assembly’s evidence base and deliberative process and to get involved with Q&As with some of our speakers. While the majority of observer places will be by invitation, requests to observe are very welcome. To apply to observe an Assembly meeting, please complete this form. Any questions should be directed to info@climateassembly.scot.

The deliberations between Assembly members are private and it is not possible for observers to listen to or participate in those discussions; this is standard practice across citizens' assemblies.
