America in One Room: Climate and Energy

Este será un proyecto de Helena, con una muestra nacional de alrededor de 500 personas y un grupo de control del tamaño comparable que fue reclutado por NORC en la Universidad de Chicago. Los socios incluyen California Forward, Greater Houston

ENGLISH

In September 2021, a new sample of America in One Room will convene to deliberate about policy options for climate and energy. These public deliberations will focus on possible options to help achieve Net Zero (the point at which we would no longer be adding to the total of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere).

This will be a Helena project, with a national sample of about 500 and a comparably sized control group recruited by NORC at the University of Chicago. Partners include California Forward, the Greater Houston Partnership, the Center for Houston’s Future and the In This Together. Results should be available before the Glasgow Summit (the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow, 31 October, 2021). Participants will deliberate online using the Stanford Platform for Online Deliberation.

Climate change is an intensely polarizing issue. It doesn’t have to be.

In the lead-up to the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), a representative sample of 962 Americans gathered last month to consider climate and energy policy proposals from across the political spectrum.

Convened by Stanford’s Center for Deliberative Democracy and the global problem-solving organization Helena, and recruited by NORC at the University of Chicago, this unprecedented group bridged partisan divides through a process called Deliberative Polling. Over the course of several weeks, participants read the best arguments from all sides, questioned experts, and engaged in thoughtful, moderated discussion via an interactive virtual platform.

Polling before and after the event found that the deliberations yielded strong, bipartisan alignment on policies to address climate change. The key question now: Will it make a difference in D.C.?

This event will take you through the results of the groundbreaking Deliberative Poll, America in One Room: Climate and Energy.

 Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), both members of the bipartisan Senate Climate Solutions Caucus, will then join us to talk about the political dynamics of this globally consequential debate—and how the findings could shape Congressional action. Their discussion will be moderated by Russell Gold, energy editor of Texas Monthly and longtime senior reporter covering climate and energy for the Wall Street Journal.

Register for free to join the discussion on Tuesday, Oct. 26 from 12-1 p.m. ET.

Deliberative Polling® in the ResilientAfrica Network

The ResilientAfrica Network will conduct the first Deliberative Polls in Africa. The partner labs will engage in Deliberative Polling® to assess the informed and representative views of the population in three stages: priorities for resilience challenges, priorities for interventions that would help address those challenges and assessment of the success of those interventions.

Deliberative Polling® in Tivaoune Peul, Senegal

An initiative has been launched to conduct Deliberative Polling® in Tivaoune Peul, a suburb of Dakar, by a research team from Cheikh Anta Diop University of Dakar (UCAD), a network plus partner of the of West Africa Resilience Innovation Laboratory (WARILab) to promote resilience and help bridge the gap between researchers, experts, civil society and communities.

Deliberative Polling® in the Tamale Metropolitan Area of Ghana

Deliberative Polling® (DP) was held in the Tamale Metropolitan Area of Ghana on January 10-11, 2015. The Tamale Poll is the first of its kind in West Africa and the second in Africa after Uganda’s Mt. Elgon region DP held in July 2014. The DP discussions revolved around challenges related to rapid urbanization. The ResilientAfrica Network is conducting the first Deliberative Polls in Africa.

Deliberative Polling® in the Bududa and Butaleja Districts of Uganda

The first DP in Africa was conducted in July 2014 in Bududa and Butaleja districts of Uganda. The topic was how to deal with the environmental disasters and population pressures that challenge life in these vulnerable communities.  The ResilientAfrica Network is conducting the first Deliberative Polls in Africa.
