In this participatory space you can familiarize yourself with the participatory budgeting process.
A participatory process is a sequence of participatory activities (e.g. first filling out a survey, then making proposals, discussing them in face-to-face or virtual meetings, and finally prioritizing them) with the aim of defining and making a decision on a specific topic.
Examples of participatory processes are: a process of electing committee members (where candidatures are first presented, then debated and finally a candidacy is chosen), participatory budgets (where proposals are made, valued economically and voted on with the money available), a strategic planning process, the collaborative drafting of a regulation or norm, the design of an urban space or the production of a public policy plan.
In participatory budgeting, the citizens will be involved in decision making by distributing their funds.
Participating budgeting is a process of democratic discussion and decision making. The background is the idea of participatory democracy, where ordinary people decide how to distribute and use the public funds available to the municipality or state. Participating budgeting allows people to define, discuss, and prioritize public consumption. At the same time, it gives people the power to make real decisions and decide how the money is spent.
