Join the PB Scotland Network
November 24, 2016
PB Scotland, run by SCDC, is launching the PB Scotland Network and you can help shape it.
Last month the International PB Conference demonstrated what a huge appetite there is for participatory budgeting (PB) in Scotland. Participatory budgeting is a way for local people to have a direct say in how, and where, public money is spent.
The diversity of the workshops and presentations on the day highlighted that PB is an innately diverse, creative and fun way of developing and maintaining dialogue with communities.
The lively discussions in the workshops and over lunch consistently referred to the need to develop a PB network for Scotland now. A network which will give a voice to communities and practitioners and ensure that stories, learning and materials are shared.
To make this happen, PB Scotland is launching the PB Scotland Network and asking you to become a member, say what you want from a network and how you can contribute.
