Coalition of Everyone – Mock Citizens Assembly #1. Fashion Apocalypse: How do we dress in a climate crisis?
-- THIS EVENT HAS ALREADY OCCURED --
Tuesday 4th of February 2020 6:30 pm
This mock Citizens’ Assembly is the first of four assemblies looking at how ordinary people can make policy decisions to tackle the climate crisis. As flames engulf our country, it is increasingly clear that politics as usual is failing us. The Coalition of Everyone invites you to experience how we can rebuild democracy.
The first mock Citizens’ Assembly in the Sustainable Living Festival is on the issue of fashion. The fashion industry’s emissions are estimated to be around the same as Russia’s. How do we move fashion onto a sustainable footing? Come and be part of the solution and learn how sortition works, and how we can all contribute to policy answers for this complex problem.
Organised by the Coalition of Everyone: Disrupting politics of fear and building a politics of hope by removing barriers to participatory, deliberative democracy, increasing representativeness and trust.
We acknowledge that First Nations people have been taking care of their country since time immemorial, are some of the first and worst affected by climate change and are leading powerful climate action. As Country has deeply changed due to colonisation and now due to global heating, including the unprecedented recent bushfires, we acknowledge the trauma and resilience of First Nations peoples.
Our heart goes out to all the people who have lost loved ones, seen their homes destroyed and been forced to flee their communities, and to the billions of animals and their homes.
This free event will have no catering. Please bring your own water bottles.
