Youth PB Accelerator organizes the initiative “Learn democracy – how to organize participatory budgets with the youngest”, which it launches together with the Granada Provincial Council; the University of Granada, through the Department of Participation and Social Innovation-Medialab UGR; and in collaboration with Laboratory 717 – Andalusian Democratic Participation and Innovation Laboratory.
The objective of this initiative is to promote the design of participatory budgets with the youngest, either from educational centers or from the municipalities, with the purpose of increasing the social commitment and empowerment of the youngest citizens with democracy. The participants will leave the laboratories with a participatory budgeting project with young people ready to be implemented, with the initiative focused on facilitating the design and sharing experiences of participatory budgeting (Participatory Budgeting) aimed at youth.
