Coord Agenda 21st Nov

Minutes: Stu

Facilitator: Nils

Present: Sibi, Simon, Clare, Gail, Lizzie, Roger, Ronan

Absent: Frieda, Robin, Liam

  1. Check-ins
  2. Regenerative Culture reminder – no public space (inc email) calling out- please deal with stuff on phone / face2face directly, there is an RU conflict resolution process, slow down your ‘yes’, return tasks if you can’t do them, and please be on time!
  3. The proposals Simon made are:
  1. That rebellion day 2 be taken down from the main XR page and relocated to the London XR page
  1. In part this is due to capacity , we seem to still be seeing the same faces take on the same tasks. In main this is due to there being no actual agreed strategy but rather a series of rolling actions that are barely meeting the criteria for effective actions. Whilst responsive flexibility is essential there are again elements of overall strategy and process being ignored here in favour of forward momentum.
  2. AP Nils to re-word the event intro to link to other events around Europe and the world
  3. Otherwise, this proposal is rejected

  1. People’s Assembly and Citizen’s Assembly on the Climate Emergency (CACE) - Stu, Gail 
  1. “How should the State take the UK to zero net greenhouse gas emissions by 2025?”
  2. 3-page Explanation
  3. Summary:
    SIMPLICITY: The topic has to be easily communicable, broadly and quickly understandable.

BIAS: Constraining the topic too tightly will lead to a substantial loss in legitimacy and people/the press/the government will see it as a stacked assembly with a predetermined outcome;

TRUST: calling for a CA requires XR to place its trust in a representative sample of deliberating informed, everyday people. If XR doesn’t have faith that such a collection of people (in a highly artificial, but politically ideal environment) will produce the “informed will of the people” – or that the expression of these people will not be exactly what XR wants, then don’t call for a CA!

The point of the CA is that the people selected will give good answers (and not the usual death-cult drivel from politicians)

The idea that the question needs to be highly specific and “narrow” (e.g that the proposal might be something like: “How should the State take the UK to zero net greenhouse gas emissions by 2025 in a way that is socially equitable and ecologically sustainable, and how can the UK best prepare and adapt to the level of climate change that now cannot be avoided?”) whilst admirable in aim, to me shows that the call for one CA is not enough – XR would actually want a series of CAs (one for zero carbon, one for adaptation, etc), or a permanent (with rotating members) CA (see Further Political Aims below).

  1. Do we still want to call for a CACE, or a permanent CA as well? (maybe given to Political Team)
  1. Maybe the CA should replace the House of Lords?
  2. AP Political Team to consider the above and bring a proposal of a question/mandate for the CA to answer
  1. Rest Day Tuesday 13th 
  1.  What needs to happen on this? Where?
  2. If necessary we can use LARC to brief AG coords
