Join us to explore Digital PB approaches

Our next PB Learning Workshop will take place on Wednesday 23 September 2020, 2.00 – 3.30 pm. Kelly McBride from The Democratic Society will share her expertise and experience of Planning and Supporting Digital PB processes

Join us to discuss and learn more about:

  • How to design inclusive on-line PB processes
  • Tools for on-line PB
  • Opportunities and challenges of on-line PB approaches
  • How to support people to get involved in PB processes which have had to move on-line due to COVID-19

Many people have taken the lead in responding to the needs of their communities throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. It is clear, that there is a growing appetite and expectation that communities and anchor organisations will have greater opportunities to share power and take a direct role in setting the priorities and spending of defined local public budgets. PB can make this ambition a reality in a way which builds trust and creates stronger and more equitable communities.

As we continue to live with the restrictions and ongoing uncertainties caused by COVID-19 a number of planned ‘in-room’ market-place Participatory Budgeting processes have had to adapt and shift on-line. This workshop will provide an opportunity to discuss both the challenges and opportunities of moving to on-line PB approaches and will explore how we can design and support these processes to be as inclusive as possible.

In order to shape the content of discussions please forward any questions you have about digital PB or moving a planned in-room PB process online to by Wednesday 16 September 2020.
