Participatory budgeting: How to start in Latvia?
On June 29, 2018 the Centre for Public Policy PROVIDUS (during the conversation festival LAMPA) organized a workshop on participatory budgeting.
Participatory budgeting is a democratic process in which community members directly decide how to spend a certain proportion of a public budget. During the workshop lecturers - Kristina Reinsalu from the "E-Governance Academy" (Estonia) and Robert Bjarnson from the "Citizens Foundation" (Iceland) - shared their experience of implementing participatory budgeting in Tartu and Reykjavik respectively. More about the PB can be found in this infographic.
