Participatory Budgeting

12.6.2013
Participatory budgets have the potential to strengthen collaboration between citizenry, politics and administration. With this instrument, citizens are prompted to increased participation and empowerment in public life. The participatory budgeting focus group aims to present models of participatory budgeting and to kick off new initiatives on the subject.

Background



The participatory budgeting focus group provides an international-wide platform that is designed to promote the exchange of information and experience and the learning of good models of participatory budgeting.
The Federal Agency for Civic Education and the Service Agency Communities in One World (SKEW) have been running the online platform www.buergerhaushalt.org, since 2007. In the Netherlands, the NECE partner organisation ProDemos offers the tool "Begrotingswijzer" (»http://www.begrotingswijzer.nl/«).
On these bases, in the context of the NECE initiative these organisations are seeking further parties who are interested in supporting and accompanying the NECE participatory budgeting focus group with their know-how and expertise. The platform is for the purposes of knowledge transfer and networking. The information and projects can then be made available to an international public via the NECE website.
Those interested in collaborating can register at focusgroup-pb@lab-concepts.de.

Events/ Meetings



The first workshop of the focus group "Participatory Budgeting" took place from 11 - 12 October 2013 in Berlin. Its aim was to find a constructive dialogue on the challenges and potentials of participatory budgeting between interested citizens and experts from science and practice of that field. The Federal Agency for Civic Education/bpb invited a small circle of European experts who exchanged views on experiences and new ideas on examples of good practice. Additionally, strategies for an efficient future networking and a concept to present the focus group and its first outcomes at this years’ NECE Conference in The Hague (14-16 November) were developed. Those who are interested in a long-term collaboration with this focus group can contact us via Email: »focusgroup-pb@lab-concepts.de«.
