In July 2019, almost 60 people from across the country gathered at Gregynog Hall in Newtown to form Wales' first ever citizens’ assembly.

They tackled the issue of how people in Wales can shape their future through the work of the National Assembly for Wales.



The Citizens’ Assembly Report

On Sunday 29 September, as part of the GWLAD festival, the Citizen’s Assembly’s report was presented to the National Assembly for Wales for consideration and action. But...

What has happened since?

Since the publication of the citizens’ assembly report, we have been working towards achieving the recommendations made by the citizens' assembly.

This is an important, large scale, venture that we really want to get right; the Commission will be making a formal response to the report in the New Year.

In the meantime, we have been working hard designing this platform, in line with of some of the recommendations made in the citizens’ assembly report:

That we facilitate a specialist online platform to enable the public to:

  • Discuss and deliberate on an issue.
  • Pose questions to Ministers and receive answers (possibly through committee sessions for example);
  • Be able to vote on the contributions of other users.

This is Your Wales

This page is for those who took part in the citizens' assembly and those who are interested in it. It will have the most up to date information and offer you the chance to discuss and ask questions, using the engagement tools below.
