Claire is a participation practitioner working in the field of systems change. She has designed and facilitated many engagement processes on environmental issues. In 2019, with Involve, she facilitated Citizens Assemblies on the climate crisis and air quality in Camden and Kingston. She is part of a group of accredited researchers observing the French Climate Change Convention.
Claire’s interest for participative democracy and environmental issues took her from France to the UK in 2004. At the time, she felt France was behind with regards to deliberative processes on sustainability topics. Sixteen years later, France is definitely leading the way with the Convention Citoyenne pour le Climat. Expectations are high, there is a lot at stake and we can learn from it.
