Driverless vEhicles are coming in our liVEs: let’s debate about it!
Saturday 27th of January 2018
How will look my daily life, with driverless cars?
Driverless cars will change the way we move. There are already being tested across France and one speaks about their commercialization in less than 10 years. However, we do not know how our lives, our territories, our skies will look like with driverless vehicles, as the scenarios are numerous.
Let’s debate about possible scenarios on Saturday, January 27th!
You will be able to react, to discuss in groups and to contribute to define a collective and citizen vision of our desires, our dreams for future but also what will be acceptable or not for tomorrow’s transports.

A CITIZEN DEBATE TO TAKE DECISIONS
A citizen debate, what is that?
Pleasure first! Meetings, a convivial lunch, learnings and unexpected discussions. A rare moment during which we take the time to take a break, to look collectively at our society, where it is going, where we want it to go.
This debate will produce a “citizens’ deliberation on the arrival of driverless vehicles in our lives”, it will be presented and discussed with public and private decision-makers in France, at both local and national levels.
This Debate at the French scale will be followed, in 2018, by a Debate at European scale, of which it constitutes the first brick.
Who will participate?
The same day, more than 500 citizens randomly selected, and not experts of the topic, spread over four locations in France, will meet for a full day of exchanges and debates.
And in practice? What should I do? How should I prepare myself?
You have nothing to prepare. All you have to do is to let yourself be guided throughout the day.
JOIN THE DEBATE
In this day of debate, you will have the floor. No expert to convince you. No special knowledge needed.
Participants exchange with each other and answer questions throughout the day. If you think that you do not have the necessary expertise for such a debate, it’s THE good reason to register!
We seek above all to give a voice to all those who do not speak often on such social issues, because they are not given the floor, they do not feel the right to express oneself or had never thought about it.
If in addition, the subject questions you, if you are interested, if you recently saw a TV show that made you want to know more about driverless vehicles, register!
The debates are non-partisan and volunteer. Around the tables, the rules are: respect for everyone and for each opinion, listening, equal time for each and everyone’s intervention.
To take part in one of the 4 debates, just register HERE. Registration is open until December 20, 2017.
A random draw will be done among the candidates to limit the participation to 100 people per location.
If you are selected, you will receive a confirmation of your participation.
If you are not selected, you will be informed of all the stages of the debate, and you will be able to express yourself via the online consultation, which will start on January 28, 2018. You will receive a summary of the results and videos testimonials of this unique day.
PARTNERS OF THE CITIZEN DEBATE
The citizen debate on driverless vehicles is carried out by a coalition of partners: local authorities hosting debates, private partners (actors from the various economic sectors concerned), public institutions and research institutes.
Missions Publiques designed it and will animate it.
MISSIONS PUBLIQUES: to debate and understand each other to decide better
A healthy democracy requires more than elections. The organization of citizen debates on all major issues of our changing society is essential to integrate the expertise of citizens in the decisions that concern them.
Our conviction: decisions are better when they are shared and when they incorporate a wide variety of perspectives, also all citizens are competent to debate the desirable world. Our job is to organize debates and participatory processes to co-build decisions.
We look forward to welcoming and discovering the participants of the debate on driverless vehicles!
