Join The Dots Participatory Budgeting – Creating Connections!
Collaboration for Change (CfC) and partners are delighted to announce the launch of Join the Dots Participatory Budgeting (PB) around the theme of creating connections. CfC is a collective of organisations and individual activists who are working alongside each other for the Common Good. Working to create open spaces for shared learning, peer support, practical hope and collaboration.
The first totally digital PB process on the theme of Creating Connections is all about bringing new folk together to work on an idea for the common good. People may also submit an idea that will, in itself Create new Connections that brings folk together for the common good. Groups can bid for funds of up to £500 (or its euro equivalent) to make an idea happen.
PB is all about people voting to decide how to allocate part of a budget. It is a way for citizens to have a direct say in how funds are used to address local needs. The CfC activists and supporters have sourced the available funds through crowdfunding.
The Join the Dots PB process is launching on 23 August at 7pm. To find out more, come along to one of the support workshops during September. Ideas should be submitted by 30 September. More information at https://www.cfctogether.org/pbintro
