How can democracy enable the scale of change required to tackle the climate challenge?

Liberal democracy is coming apart, under threat from the rise of populism and increasingly unable to deliver the solutions to the multiple challenges facing society. We urgently need bold and radical ideas - not just for the policies we need to tackle the many crises we face - but for the processes necessary to unlock that change.

The climate crisis requires radical interventions in the economy, especially in challenging expectations of exponential growth and adds another layer of complexity to challenges facing democracy.

Caroline Lucas MP is joined by Professor David Runciman to explore the range of approaches needed to confront this multifaceted concern, and whether deliberative processes can offer a practical way forward to engage citizens more directly in political decision-making and strengthen representative democracy.
