Our field of action

From local to global

Citizens’ consultation on vaccination

We ran a national citizens’ consultation to support the action plan to renew vaccination policy, introduced on January 12, 2016 by the French health ministry.

Method

Two juries – one made up of citizens and one of healthcare professionals – met for six days to learn more, debate and put forward propositions. Alongside this consultation, 10,435 web users’ contributions were collected, read and analyzed between September 14 and October 14, 2016.

 

Impact

The two juries submitted their opinion to the steering committee, which took inspiration from it when drafting their conclusions for the Ministry.

Citizens’ debate on Space for Europe

On the initiative of the European Space Agency (ESA), a major debate was held, bringing together almost 2,000 citizens and run simultaneously in 20 EU countries in 17 languages.

Method

The participants reflected on European diversity as they defended what they see as the priorities for the European space program. This was the first time in European history that the future of space exploration and exploitation was addressed at such a far-reaching citizens event.

 

Impact

The consolidated results helped ESA Director General, Jan Wörner and his team to nurture the agency’s strategy.

In their words

It was a clear success. This is how Europe should work. It is a dream come true.

Jan Wörner, European Space Agency (ESA) Director General

CIMULACT

Missions Publiques partners the French research program known as CIMULACT, which works with citizens to improve the relevance of European research and innovation programs. It is part of the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 program, which we designed jointly with five other partners.

 

Method

Over 2015-16, around 60 national citizens’ consultations, a two-day gathering of citizens and experts, online consultation and a pan-European conference were held. Two thousand participants took part in the meetings and almost 3,500 joined in online.

 

Impact

These debates and conferences helped shape the scenarios submitted to the European Commission at the end of 2016 and confirmed the added value generated by involving citizens when drawing up the research agenda.

“Shaping culture” in Haute-Garonne

On the initiative of the Haute-Garonne department in France, an extensive citizens’ consultation was run to understand how to make access to cultural attractions more democratic.

Method

Between summer 2017 and spring 2018, a citizens’ consultation, three professional gatherings, five ‘cultural apéritif’ events and a citizens’ jury were organized, involving a total 4,000 participants (including 3,000 citizens).

 

Impact

An enlightened and well-argued opinion on how to nurture culture by all and for all across the area, and how to attract people who are often excluded from culture. The department’s council has already announced some new initiatives inspired by the consultation.

WORLD WIDE VIEWS ON CLIMATE AND ENERGY

Under the aegis of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and with backing from the French, German and Norwegian governments, Missions Publiques put forward and jointly coordinated the set-up of the largest ever global citizens’ consultation, as part of COP 21.

 

Method

Ten thousand citizens, from 76 countries on five continents and 13 islands, got the chance to say what decisions they would make if they were involved in the Paris agreement.

 

Impact

The results of this consultation were presented then defended before the policy-makers involved in the UNFCCC’s negotiations in the six months prior to COP21 and during the Paris summit, with fifteen or so presentations in all.
