So... basically having newer representatives talk to our representatives. Citizen assemblies are an ancient idea because back then you could gather everyone who legally had a voice in one room. In the modern progressive world there has to be a better way to disseminate power to the individual than by adding an extra layer of representation to the mix

"How to restore trust in politics"
Idk, maybe try having elected officials that actually push policies that the people want? thats literally all the people wants, for the government and its policy makers to respond to the people that voted for them.

We're implementing this in Brussels, and can use all the support we can get to institutionalise deliberative democracy. Step one was entering in parliament as a Trojan Horse. What should our next step be? Hit us in PM!

IDK but it seems like that such referendums would be exploited by Populist politicians for short-term electoral gains, instead of having realistic and pragmatic structural reforms, which are actually beneficial in the long run.

Nice it’s like having jury duty in the US. But instead of presiding over a trial you can preside over laws or at the very least a recommendation of a law.
