Today saw Chris Huhne and DECC launch My2050 at my2050.decc.gov.uk.

My2050 challenges you to get UK CO₂ emissions below 20% by 2050 by setting how much effort is applied to areas both in the Supply and Demand sectors. The percentage is compared to 1990 levels of CO₂ emissions.

This is a project that I am excited about both personally and professionally. It’s a really interesting problem and one that everyone seems to have a different angle on. It has been 12 months in the making and involved a lot of great work from the team here at Delib and especially the 2050 strategy team at DECC.

Let’s hope it makes a great debate and once you’ve submitted your pathway be sure to check back here to see how it’s getting on.

Who’s Using Citizen Space?

We know what it’s like. Not many organisations like to be the first to adopt to something, especially when it comes to something as sensitive as consultation and engagement.

So, aside from the wide range of accessibility and security testing that Citizen Space has been through, we thought we’d share with you who’s using the system at the moment, so you can see what they’ve been doing with it.

In central government in the UK, we have the Central Office of Information, the Department of Health, and the Department of Energy and Climate Change. In wider government, we have Transport for London, and on a more local level we have Bristol City Council, the London Borough of Sutton, Rotherham PCT and a partnership of 9 authorities in Cumbria all using the system, with the London Borough of Barnet, Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council and Avon and Somerset Constabulary all set to go live very soon.

Farther afield, we have the South Australian Government’s Department for Families and Communities using the system for similar processes in a different context.

There are many more organisations looking at Citizen Space at the moment due to its low cost, lack of ongoing license fees and proven flexibility. If you’d like to find out more about it, then get in touch!
