Participatory Budgeting: Achievements and Ambitions

March 4, 2024

Imagine Festival 2024

Join us at the Imagine Festival 2024 (on Thursday, 21 March 2024 from 10.00 am to 12 noon) for a panel discussion to share progress and learning on Participatory Budgeting (PB) practice across the region.  There have been over 40 PB processes in the last six years with citizens taking decisions on how public budgets should be allocated to deliver community-led projects.

The PB projects have covered a range of issues including health and wellbeing, community safety, village renewal, democracy, healthy eating and physical activity, younger people, housing and homelessness, community connections and collaboration to name a few.  PB is continuing to grow and develop, and this is an opportunity to celebrate achievements to date.

Join us in conversation with some of our PB trailblazers:

  • Tak£500+ – led by Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council’s Community Planning Partnership;
  •  Glens Healthy Places – led by the Northern Area Community Network;
  •  Community Solutions to Housing and Homelessness – led by the Community Foundation NI and the Oak Foundation; and
  •  Move More and Eat Well to Feel Better – led by Active Belfast Partnership.

It is also an opportunity to explore ambitions for the future through the PB Route Map.
