Participatory Budgeting for a Vibrant City: Newcastle, UK.

Abstract

Through an international learning exchange between eight European cities, Newcastle City Council became inspired to use participatory budgeting: getting local people to understand how public money is used and involving them in decision-making around it. This case study illustrates the value of sharing experiences of empowerment internationally and explains how participatory budgeting (PB), as developed originally in Brazil, has been adapted to support community empowerment in the northern UK city of Newcastle upon Tyne.
