Event description

Description

PB Network logoThe UK Participatory Budgeting (PB) Un-Conference 2015

Where you will be able to meet the movers and shakers in the world of participatory democracy in the UK. Learn about what is happening in the world of PB ... internationally, at the national level and within your community.

From the groundbreaking work currently happening across Scotland through to the smallscale innovative PB work in local communities across the UK and beyond...

Participatory budgeting is a proven method of connecting with the hardest to reach in society, re-oxygenating stale political processes, and modernising public service delivery.

More information on our informative and fast paced national and international gathering will be released shortly, but here are some highlights to whet your appetite.

  • Stimulating high profile speakers such as Giovanni Allegretti and Prof Graham Smith.
    There will also be a presentation by Kathleen Glazik, policy officer from the Scottish Government Community Empowerment Unit, who will be introducing a specially recorded video message from

    Alex Neil MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Social Justice, Communities and Pensioners’ Rights.

  • Workshops to build learning on a wide range of topics. From digital engagement to new models of policing and on delivering wellbeing, all delivered by leading practitioners including DEMSOC, Caroline Latta, Paul Twivy and Dr Andrew Fisher.

  • PB ‘Unconference’… our open space afternoon where through free flowing debate and deliberation you tackle the issues that matter to you. Facilitated by experts in creating dynamic learning communities.


Competitively priced, with refreshments included throughout the day, we want to include as wide a selection of voices as possible. With the aim of spreading best practise and building a stronger PB Network, able to influence and accelerate the cause of citizen empowerment and open government.
