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.

America in One Room Climate and Energy: Discussion Results from a National Deliberative Poll

VIEW THE WEBINAR HERE AND THE SUPPLEMENTAL VIDEO HERE.

America in One Room: Climate and EnergyHelena project, is the largest controlled experiment with “in-depth deliberation” ever held in the U.S.  It addressed this question: What would the American public really think about our climate and energy challenges if it had the chance to deliberate about them in-depth, with good and balanced information?
 
If the American people—or in this case, a representative sample of them—could consider the pros and cons of our different energy options, which would they support? Which would they cut back on? What possible paths to Net Zero would seem plausible to them? Which proposals would they resist? Can the public arrive at solutions to our climate and energy dilemmas that transcend our great divisions, especially our deep partisan differences? Can they also find common ground across differences in age, race, and region?
 
These and other questions were discussed on Wednesday, December 1, 2021, 12:30-2:00 p.m. PST

Panelists included:

Nicole Ardoin, Director, Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources (E-IPER), Associate Professor of Education and Senior Fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment, Stanford University

Rep. John Curtis, United States House of Representative, (R-UT)

Solutions for our planet: In search of common ground on climate and energy policy

Harvard Webinar Discussing Results

VIDEO RECORDING IS AVAILABLE HERE.

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.

VOICES OF THE FUTURE

Voices of the Future
Deliberative Polling Event

Sponsored by the American Academy of Arts and Sciences
 
 

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

On November 6, Voices of the Future was a national deliberative event involving young people between ages 18-29. WE had TWO parallel discussions happening on this day. One was with a nationally representative sample recruited by YouGov and the second was a non-random sample being recruited through our cross-national practicum, which included students from Stanford University, Marquette University, Slippery Rock University, Yale University, and Our Common Purpose, a project supported by the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. The two samples had separate discussions
 
The event was 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 used a structured deliberation model based on Deliberative Polling

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