Peoples Assembly Tiverton September 2019

On 20 September 2019 a town centre march for the Global Climate Strike presented a
tree to both Town and District Councils to thank them for declaring the Climate
Emergency; then Sustainable Tiverton and Extinction Rebellion jointly convened an
Assembly using the guidance provided by Extinction Rebellion. 40 local people took
part by volunteering themselves and were not an invited or selected group. After
explanation of the inclusive deliberation method, 5 groups of 8 people considered the
question “What would a Zero-carbon Tiverton Look Like?” Each group had a facilitator
and a note-taker. This report contains the most supported suggestions from each
group, plus additional notes from their discussions and from wider public contributions
to the same question which had been displayed in the town centre that week.
