In a special edition of the Davy Jones politics show on RadioFreeBrighton, these are recordings of interviews he undertook while attending the International Participatory Budgeting Conference in Edinburgh in 2016.
In four interviews he talks to Jez Hall from the UK Participatory Budgeting (PB) Network, Alastair Kennedy from Elgin, Kathleen Glazik, a civil servant in the Scottish Government, and Giovanni Allegretti, an academic and international expert on Participatory Budgeting (PB).
Jez talks about how PB first came to the UK, survived austerity and become mainstream again. Alistair discusses why PB works locally, Kathleen reports on how PB in Scotland became embedded within mainstream public policy and Gio looks more widely how PB has operated across the world.
