Any situation in which some men prevent others from engaging in the process of inquiry is one of violence… to alienate humans from their own decision making is to change them into objects.

The dream

We want anyone, anywhere
to have ready access to, and influence over,
public expenditure decisions.

REMOVING THE BARRIERS

Traditional participatory budgeting is inaccessible, expensive and complicated.

The cure for the evils of democracy is more democracy.

— H.L. Mencken —

The Argument

Participatory budgeting directly involves local people
in making decisions about the public money
being spent in their community.

THE BENEFITS ARE REAL

THREE ARGUMENTS FOR PARTICIPATORY BUDGETING

Democracy is not a spectator sport, it’s a participatory event. If we don’t participate in it, it ceases to be a democracy.

— Michael Moore —

The Purpose

Participatory budgeting is regularly used by community groups and governments around the world to prioritize local spending.

GOVERNMENTS, COMMUNITY ORGANISATIONS, PRIVATE SECTOR GRANTS

THREE APPLICATIONS FOR PARTICIPATORY BUDGETING
