People Powered is a new Global Hub to support and champion participatory democracy. Its initial flagship programme is the Global Participatory Budgeting Hub which will work towards improving and expanding participatory budgeting (PB) by addressing the common challenges and opportunities experienced by those who are interested in PB.
The PB Hub is a very welcome addition to the PB Community. Alongside raising the profile of PB as a global initiative, there will be a new international mentorship programme. Or you can check out the resources section and find out about the PB mentorship programme.
It’s mission is to expand people’s power to make government decisions, by supporting organizations and governments that are building participatory democracy around the world.
Guiding the Hub’s work to improve PB practice and impacts is The PB Support Board. It is responsible for advising on the needs of PB implementers and advocates, deciding on priorities for new PB resources and tools, and supporting the Hub in developing and disseminating resources and tools.
The PB Research Board coordinates global research on PB and its impacts. It is responsible for developing a global PB research agenda and supporting researchers in launching new studies that address research priorities.
