This online event will include case presentations, discussions on how to run and learn from PB, and networking with others interested in PB.
Many municipalities and other stakeholders are currently planning or implementing participatory budgeting (PB) in the Baltic Sea Region. As PB is a joint effort, it is important to learn from others. Therefore we, the EmPaci - Empowering Participatory Budgeting in the Baltic Sea Region - project warmly invite you to join our pilot municipalities and partners in an afternoon of case presentations and discussions on how to run and learn from PB.
The main purpose of the event is to exchange ideas and share experiences, as well as networking with others interested in PB. You don’t need to have first-hand experience from PB in order to attend, and all interested attendees are welcome.
The event will be hosted by EmPaci project partner leaders Dr. Lotta-Maria Sinervo and Ms. Annukka Heinonen online on Zoom, and a link as well as a more detailed agenda will be sent to you by email closer to the date. Please register for the event from the online link: https://www.lyyti.fi/reg/Municipal_Participatory_Budgeting
Please feel free to contact us at EmPaci if you have any questions regarding the online networking afternoon. More information about the EmPaci project is available at www.empaci.eu, and the Finnish PB case examples can be found at www.lab.fi/empaci (only in Finnish).
