Event description

Description

Participatory Budgeting

Participatory Budgeting (PB) enables local people to decide on the issues that matter to them. Helping them to understand public spending, put forward their own ideas and vote on them. It involves giving people a bigger role in delivering services too, and in ensuring public money is well spent.

It is more than asking people what they think. It’s a new form of democracy that brings fresh perspectives.

The masterclass will also explore how PB can enhance elected members’ role as community leaders. Key themes such as democratic engagement, community empowerment, public service reform and community capacity building will be covered in a highly discursive session.

The masterclass will be facilitated by PB Partners, who have been involved in supporting PB projects in local authorities across Scotland.

This workshop is open only to elected members of Scottish Local Authorities.
