Welcome to Participatory Budgeting, or PB for short! PB is a direct form of democracy that directly involves and empowers you to make REAL decisions about how to a defined part of a public budget. Principles that are integral to PB are transparency, equal opportunity and empowerment. This means that individuals who represent all parts of the community can be involved in the process. You will get to discuss and vote on spending priorities as well as scrutinise and monitor the entire process. Use this forum to bounce ideas off each other, discuss more about proposals that have been submitted and leave feedback on the process of PB. Remember to be respectful and kind!
