The Big Climate Conversation was deliberately designed with the aim of enabling participation from everyone who wanted to have their say. The objective was to gather views from a wide range of locations and backgrounds, as well as from people with varying levels of engagement with the issue of climate change.
This objective guided the design of a programme of different types of public engagement activities, which comprised a mix of face-to-face and online engagement, as well as both government-organised and community-organised events.
The programme contained the following core strands:
- Facilitated workshops
- Community-led conversations
- A digital conversation
