Event description

Description

PB Partners are delivering a series of free events across the UK in response to the Climate Change emergency.

Participatory Budgeting is an effective way for local authorities, and other statutory bodies to respond to this existential threat, and mobilise and enable communities take action themselves.

These 4 events over June and July are designed to raise awareness and consider how to realise the potential of:

Our Money, Our Planet’.

Co-hosted with What Works Scotland

Why we are running these events

Participatory Budgeting (PB) – where people vote directly on spending priorities in their local areas, has, over several decades, demonstrated its success at mobilising and enthusing communities around issues that matter to them.

Such as, in the UK, in Scotland, which has been taking the lead in Participatory Budgeting, with all 32 Local Authority areas engaged in some form of PB, and an aspiration to allocate 1% of all Local Authority budgets through PB, equating to over £100m per year.

Benefit for you

These workshops will provide an opportunity to develop ideas around how PB can best help tackle our impending climate crisis, both at local and a strategic levels. You will be able to network with like minded people, and explore in a lively and practical way how to apply Participatory Budgeting in your own context.

After all, it is our money, and it is our only planet.



This free event will be facilitated by
