Participatory Budgeting (PB) is a fairly new way to make decisions about publicly funded projects. Participatory Budgeting gives ordinary people decision-making power over real money. PB is already working in over 1,500 municipalities around the world. It includes everyone in the community – especially those who are often excluded from the political process or feel disillusioned with current political structures and institutions.
This exposition on the 25th of March is shaping up to be a fun-filled, family friendly event where members of the committee will get to showcase the work they have been doing, and share the committee’s recommendations. Community members from throughout Buffalo will get to learn about the PB process.
