Participatory Budgeting Beyond Box Ticking: Inclusive and Meaningful Participatory Budgeting in an Age of Inequality

10:30 - 11:50
Room 211, Shaw Centre

There have been thousands of experiences with participatory budgeting (PB) around the world over the 30-plus years since the early days of the experiments in Porto Alegre, Brazil. Some PB experiences have produced meaningful advances in inclusion of citizens from more marginalized social groups, as well as real impacts in terms of improved services and outcomes. However, not all PB experiences have proved to be as inclusive and meaningful. What does it take to make PB experiences, particularly OGP NAP commitments around PB, more successful? This workshop will seek to provide participants with an opportunity to answer this question for themselves by digging deeper into PB trends, lessons and concrete experiences, then collectively applying those insights to their own contexts and needs.
