PB Conference 2019: Josh Lerner - Keynote speaker

Josh Lerner

We're absolutely thrilled to be welcoming Josh Lerner, author, Co-Executive Director of the Participatory Budgeting Project and director of the new Global PB Hub.

PBP is a nonprofit organisation that empowers people to decide together how to spend public money across the US and Canada. Through programs that PBP has launched and supported, 534,000 people in 30 cities have directly decided how to spend $337,000,000 using PB.

His work on participatory budgeting has been recognised by The Obama White House as a model for open government, and by the Brown Democracy Medal as the best practical innovation advancing democracy around the world.

We can't wait to hear from Josh about PBP's work and learn from his experience delivering participatory budgeting across the globe.
