Democratic Innovations in a Green Transition (DIGT)

The project, Democratic Innovations in a Green Transition (DIGT), which is headed by Professor Lars Tønder from the Institute of Political Science (UCPH), explores how democracy is affected by, and can in turn affect, efforts to address the effects of climate change. The project looks at the Danish citizen assembly on climate change, which is set to begin work in 2021. In the context of a greater European trend of climate citizen assemblies, DIGT examines how the inclusion of citizens in the political process impacts deliberation on climate change issues, and how these deliberations filter from the political system into civil society.
