The first Citizens’ Jury on Climate Actions was convened in Finland in 2021. Researchers of the University of Turku convened a Citizens’ Jury to deliberate on climate actions, commissioned by the Climate Policy Roundtable and Ministry of the Environment.

The Citizens’ Jury was composed of 33 randomly selected citizens who discussed the climate actions included in the Medium-term Climate Change Policy Plan and formulated an informed public judgement on them. The discussion was based on a list drawn up by the Ministry of the Environment of possible emission reduction measures concerning matters that are relevant for the consumers: transport, food and housing.

During the discussion the Citizens’ Jury heard experts, assessed the fairness and effectiveness of the climate actions and drew up a statement on the matter. The results of the Jury will be used in the preparation of the new Medium-term Climate Change Policy Plan.

The final report presents the composition and work of the Citizens’ Jury and the views of the participants on the Jury. The statement formulated by the Citizens’ Jury is also included in the report.
