The Danish Board of Technology introduced a new form of public involvement in which a small group (6-10) of citizens are invited to study a risk issue and provide the legal decision-maker with recommendations at the end of the process. It is good to use an equal number of men and women and representatives from different age groups and cultures. The team is given all the materials they need to make a decision and are encouraged to share ideas with the decision-makers. After much discussion the team meets in private and makes recommendations, which are presented to the decision-makers.
At the end, the team prepares a document of recommendations and presents this to the media. This is a good technic because it allows for the values of the public to be included in the decision-making process. Negatively, this technic puts a lot of pressure on a small group of people.
