Become a member of the PB Scotland Network

Last month the International PB Conference demonstrated what a huge appetite there is for participatory budgeting in Scotland. The diversity of the workshops and presentations on the day highlighted that PB is an innately diverse, creative and fun way of developing and maintaining dialogue with communities.

The lively discussions in the workshops and over lunch consistently referred to the need to develop a PB network for Scotland now. A network which will give a voice to communities and practitioners and ensure that stories, learning and materials are shared.

To make this happen, PB Scotland are launching the PB Scotland Network and asking you to become a member, tell us what you want from a network and how you can contribute.
