July 17-18 — Participatory Budgeting with IAP2
What is Participatory Budgeting (PB) and how does it work? PB is a democratic process where community members directly decide how to spend part of a public budget. The process begins with the formation of a community-based steering committee; the steering committee designs and governs the process; at the start of the process, people come together (in person and online) to learn about the budget, share ideas and volunteer as budget delegates; budget delegates work with the government entity and other experts to develop proposals based on these ideas; community members vote on proposals and the government implements the top projects.
