Participatory Budgeting UK National Conference (and UnConference)

The Participatory Budgeting UK National Conference will be taking place on Monday 26th October 2015 in Birmingham.  

The event will feature:

  • Stimulating high profile speakers such as Giovanni Allegretti and Prof Graham Smith. There will also be a presentation by Kathleen Glazik, policy officer from the Scottish Government Community Empowerment Unit, who we hope will be introducing a specially recorded video message from Marco Biagi MSP, Scotland Government Minister for Local Government and Community Empowerment.
  • Learn about what is happening in the world of PB ... internationally, at the national level and within your community.
  • Workshops to build learning on a wide range of topics. From digital engagement to new models of policing and on delivering wellbeing, all delivered by leading practitioners including DEMSOC, Caroline Latta, Paul Twivy and Dr Andrew Fisher.
  • PB ‘Unconference'... the open space afternoon where through free flowing debate and deliberation you tackle the issues that matter to you. Facilitated by experts in creating dynamic learning communities.
The event aims to facilitate the spreading best of practise and the building a stronger PB Network, able to influence and accelerate the cause of citizen empowerment and open government.
