Citizens’ Climate Assembly in Austria

Last updated: 2 August 2023

Based on the measures proposed in the Public Climate Referendum, the Austrian government is creating a Citizens’ Climate Assembly as a participatory process to discuss and develop proposals for a set of concrete measures to ensure the achievement of climate neutrality by 2040. These proposals will then be submitted to the government and the Austrian climate cabinet, and a final report will subsequently be presented to the climate cabinet and the National Climate Committee for discussion. The composition of the 100 members of the Citizens’ Climate Assembly will be a representative cross-section of the Austrian population. The overall management of the process will be put to a European-wide tender, and start by the end of 2021. The process will be guided by a scientific advisory committee and a stakeholder committee.
