- Randomly select a broadly representative bunch of people.
- Bring them together in an assembly, typically at small tables or groups, with a neutral facilitator in each group.
- Have experts and others address the assembly to make sure everyone is aware of the facts, diverse viewpoints, and the proposed options.
- Get the participants to deliberate, listen and talk to each other - and give reasons for their opinions.
- Decide! On what is the best way forward.
