Many municipalities and other stakeholders are currently planning or implementing participatory budgeting (PB) in the Baltic Sea Region. As PB is a joint effort, it is important to learn from others. Therefore we, the EmPaci – Empowering Participatory Budgeting in the Baltic Sea Region -project set up a network: PBbase. The aim of this network is to share information and experiences regarding the implementation of participatory budgeting in different local settings.
EmPaci is an EU Interreg BSR funded project called “Empowering Participatory Budgeting in the Baltic Sea Region”. In this Baltic Sea regional project we will develop and implement participatory budgeting in 9 municipalities in 6 countries (Finland, Germany, Lithuania, Latvia, Poland and Russia).
