IAP2 February Webinar:  Montreal Encore: "Making Engagement Meaningful with P2 Toolkits" – February 14, 2017

In this webinar, Cristelle Blackford of CivicMakers, Abby Monroe of the City of Chicago, and Zane Hamm of the Centre for Public Involvement in Edmonton, talk about their successes in putting together kits specifically for particular projects. These kits are for people "closer to the ground" on certain issues, and by empowering and training them, can help overcome obstacles some of the challenges to a p2 professional, such as local distrust of governments or a government policy mandating P2 in a lot of instances.
The three invite comments and your own experiences in working with toolkits. Please contact Cristelle at cristelle@civicmakers.com; Abby at Abby.Monroe@CityofChicago.org; and Zane at zhamm@ualberta.ca.

IAP2 January Webinar: Participatory Budgeting – January 10, 2017



Shari Davis

Participatory Budgeting. A novel concept that allows ordinary people to have a say in developing public budget. It's a concept that's been gathering momentum for the past several years. What started as a bold experiment in Brazil has grown into an integral part of some municipalities' spending decisions. Local governments are using this tool to give their people more and more say in allocations of public funds.

This concept is catching on, and Shari Davis of the Participatory Budgeting Project described how PB has developed and shared some success stories.

Shari was joined by Luc Richard, from the City of Dieppe, New Brunswick. Luc has had success quarterbacking a PB process in Dieppe and shared how his city put the idea into practice.

For more information feel free to contact Shari Davis at shari@participatorybudgeting.org or check out the Participatory Budgeting Project on Facebook!
