TRANSPARENT PARTICIPATORY BUDGETING IN YOUR CITY
Hromadskyi Project is all-in-one IT-solution
for participatory budgeting automation
What is participatory budgeting
Being a huge trend in democracy, participatory budgeting helps to build a long-lasting dialogue between the officials and the citizens. It allows citizens to have their say on local budget spendings, while bringing strategic development ideas for the municipal officials
Allocate money for participatory budgeting
Processes may vary, but the typical PB model is the following: first, as a city, you allocate certain amount of local budget for citizens' projects
Collect ideas and
conduct voting
Locals come up with the ideas for the city, be it playgrounds or music festivals. These projects get your review and go to open citywide voting
Implement the winning projects and report
After the best projects are chosen by citizens, municipality makes them come to life. At each stage, you report the results to citizens
Why launch participatory budgeting?
PB works on many levels to strengthen local democracy. First, it allows you to plan budget spendings and form city's development strategy considering citizens' priorities. PB helps build a lasting dialogue with your citizens to efficiently tackle local problems. Moreover, successful participatory budgeting contributes to innovative image of your municipality.
