Public Spending, by the People - 0 views

  •  
    From 2014 to 2015, more than 70,000 residents across the United States and Canada directly decided how their cities and districts should spend nearly $50 million in public funds through a process known as participatory budgeting (PB). PB is among the fastest growing forms of public budgeting in budgeting governance, having expanded to 46 communities in the U.S. and Canada in just 6 years.

PBinSchools - The Participatory Budgeting Project - 0 views

  •  
    The Guide shows how to get your school working with Participatory Budgeting (PB). The PB process creates an experiential learning environment for community Budgeting at a Budgeting level. Students are challenged to think about community needs and issues, exploring their environment. They are then empowered to design and implement a solution, taking shared ownership of their school community. They will gain a new attachment to their community; a sense of pride that comes with civic contribution. And they will build a stronger, more collaborative relationship with school administration, one another, and the community at large.

California Common Sense Transparency Beta - 1 views

  •  
    Imagine a world in which ordinary citizens are invested in their governments and take ownership of them by virtue of actually knowing a) how government works and b) how their tax dollars are used for public services. We at CACS see that world vividly and are guided by the vision that solutions to major local and state problems will stem from the marriage of transparency and local. The innovative technologies we use open up government, expose its excesses, draw its shareholders-particularly young people-into the political process, and improve the efficacy of services on which citizens rely.
