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.

VOICES OF THE FUTURE

You’re Invited:

Voices of the Future
Deliberative Polling Event, November 6

Sponsored by the American Academy of Arts and Sciences
 

On November 6, Voices of the Future is a national deliberative event involving over 500 young people, between ages 18-29.  We want you to be part of it!

Voices of the Future
November 6, 2021
9:00a-3:00pm (Pacific) / 12:00p-6:00pm (Eastern)

The event is designed to capture what a diverse group of young people would think about important public policy issues after having an opportunity to listen to and learn from others. The event will use a structured deliberation model based on Deliberative Polling

The proposals we discuss at “Voices of the Future” are carefully balanced and vetted by experts from across the political spectrum. Results from the event will provide a unique window into the views of young people in the United States and will be featured at the American Academy of Arts and Sciences’ Summit in November. Participants in past Deliberative Polls have enjoyed the opportunity to discuss important policy issues with others whom they wouldn’t normally have an opportunity to meet.


We hope you will join us for this important event. If you have any questions, you can reach us at deliberation-support@lists.stanford.edu

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.

PARTICIPANTS:

Introduction

Michelle A. Williams, Dean of the Faculty, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health; Angelopoulos Professor in Public Health and International Development, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Harvard Kennedy School

Political Panel

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R- S.C.), member of the Senate Climate Solutions Caucus

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), member of the Senate Climate Solutions Caucus

Rapport Finale

More than ever before, our lives as Canadians are shaped by what happens outside Canada: from the food on our tables, to the jobs we may hold, to the technology that connects us to our loved ones and that keeps us informed. And now, with a pandemic turning our lives upside down, our very health is influenced by international affairs. In a democracy, citizens must have a say in the decisions that affect their lives. Increasingly, decisions that affect our lives are impacted by developments and decisions beyond our borders. The lives of everyday Canadians are shaped by the way Canada engages in the world. At the same time that our interdependence with other countries has grown, the world has become a more divided place. The past few years have seen an increase in competition between countries, as the alliances and institutions that unite us grow weaker. Just as we now rely more on decisions made at the international level to Instill some stability in our lives, those decisions have become more and more difficult to make. How should Canada work with other countries to improve our lives? You, like all citizens, have an essential role to play in answering this question. Foreign policy shapes your life. This exercise is an opportunity to learn what Canada’s foreign policy

Greater Houston Deliberates: The University of Texas Hobby School Deliberative Poll on Current and Future Immigration Policy

On June 15, 2019, a scientific sample of over 250 residents of the Greater Houston area was convened to deliberate on present and future policies regarding immigration. The 254 participants of this Deliberative Poll were pulled from a registered voter sample of roughly 20,000 purchased from Aristotle and RDD sample of roughly 10,000, with the goal of reflecting the demographic distribution of the registered voter population in the Greater Houston Area with respect to age, gender, race and ethnicity, and political party preferences. Prior to deliberation, participants received balanced briefing materials vetted by a distinguished advisory group with summaries on each of the key areas including arguments for and against the policy proposals, and completed a questionnaire illustrating their initial views. On the day of the event, participants met at the UH Hilton, where they were placed in small moderated groups to discuss four issue areas—Crime and Public Safety, Economy and the Workforce, Higher Education Benefits, and Legal Options for Undocumented Immigrants—before posing questions to a balanced panel of experts and policymakers.
