Taking place across the country, the PB Festival was two days of events, discussion and ideas around participatory budgeting in Scotland.

The Festival was made up of PB Scotland Network members like you from across the country. Members held discussions, events, or just invited others to learn about your PB experience. 

The Festival was a chance to learn from what's been happening and hear from the people who have being been planning, running and voting in PB processes across Scotland.

Why should I get involved in the Festival?
The PB Festival will be a chance to come together to learn about what's happening around participatory budgeting. So if you're planning PB processes, you've voted in one or you've never even heard of it, you'll gain more understanding about how PB works and why it's important.

How can I get involved?

Who can get run an event?
Anyone! We want to hear from everyone who has been involved in participatory budgeting or is just interested in learning more.

What will PB Scotland be doing?
We'll be running some events of our own, and bringing everything together on the PB Scotland site and using @PB_Scotland. We'll try and get a flavour of everything that's happening and feedback some of the key lessons and ideas to the rest of the network.

What can PB Scotland do for my event?
We can provide branding, social media promotion and share some top tips about how to run it. Tell us your idea and weโ€™ll get in touch.
