Participatory Budgeting: Real Money, Real Power

Mar 10, 2020 | 12:30pm – 2:00pm

Our democracy is in crisis, and young people are looking for opportunities to use their voices in meaningful ways. Participatory budgeting (PB), which gives students real decision-making power over part of the school budget, has proven to be exactly this kind of transformative process in schools. In this experiential workshop, we’ll actually experience a school PB process, share lessons learned from the past decade, and delve into how you can launch PB in your school/district.
