Impacts of Participatory Budgeting on Education & Learning
Enroll in online seminar to learn about the impacts of participatory budgeting (PB) on education and learning, and how you can use the latest research findings to support your work.
When: October 14, 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. EDT (New York time)
Thousands of governments and institutions have implemented PB, giving residents the power to decide how to spend part of a public budget.
Recently, many schools and universities have been using PB to engage students, educators, and community members in making spending decisions.
Can PB act as a “school of democracy”?
A growing body of research has documented the impacts of PB in governments, schools, and universities. Understanding these findings can help government innovators, civil society advocates, educators, and students launch or improve PB in their own communities.
In this People Powered University seminar, leading researchers will share key findings on the impacts of PB on education and learning, explaining how it can build participants’ civic skills, empower students and teachers beyond the classroom, strengthen community cohesion, and more.
The speakers of the seminar are Karla Valverde Viesca (facilitator), National Autonomous University of Mexico (Mexico), Daniel Schugurensky, Participatory Governance Initiative, Arizona State University (United States), Andrés Falck, Coglobal (Spain), Cintia Pinillos, National University of Rosario (Argentina), Gisela Signorelli, National University of Rosario (Argentina), Aline Yunery Zunzunegui López, LOOP Mx (Mexico).
Practitioners who have implemented PB in schools, universities, and cities will help translate this research into practical recommendations and next steps for your work.
Register and share your questions by September 30, and we’ll incorporate them into the planning of the seminar.
This seminar will take place in Spanish with captions. Organizers will provide simultaneous interpretation in English, French, and Portuguese, and other languages upon request. Please share your language preferences when you register.
