The citizen participants in this project will be selected at random, but controlled to ensure appropriate representation of age, gender, ethnicity and location across the four nations of the UK. This method of selection is called ‘sortition’. This approach is important because it means that, in principle, any UK citizen could be represented in the Citizens’ Economic Council, giving the recommendations of the Council legitimacy.

If you are not selected, there are still ways to get involved.

You can head over to our Your Policy Idea page to try out different policy ideas and see the effect on your household and the UK economy.
