Open call for Participatory Budgeting Champions: Express your interest
Are you passionate about high quality citizen empowerment? Want to be at the forefront of democratic innovation? Inspired enough to commit your energies to make the voices of all citizens of Scotland heard?
PB Scotland is now seeking to create a dedicated group of PB champions, who are able to support others on their journey. People with the skills, commitment and capacity to learn, and then share that learning. Without having a group of people in Scotland who can provide good quality advice and support on PB, we risk a skills gap just as momentum is growing.
You may be a qualified community engagement professional, a grass roots community activist or perhaps someone who understands how commissioning and public finance works. There is no ideal candidate.
What is more important is your commitment and your capacity. You'll be working as part of a team, with the support of experienced mentors and the other PB champions, to enhance the understanding of PB and contribute towards a fairer, more democratic Scotland.
