The Youth PB Accelerator, in collaboration with the University of Granada, was present through Medialab UGR in the presentation of the new edition of the Participative Budgets 2021 of Altea City Council.

The presentation was supported by the Department of Citizen Participation of the Generalitat Valenciana and the Regional Secretary. In addition, in this event, the winning projects in previous editions, which have been improved, and the improvements made to the Citizen Participation Website were presented.

Within the framework of the event, the research team from the University of Granada was invited to present in detail the Erasmus + Youth PB project: its objectives, its website and other advances made in the project.

“The Youth PB project not only seeks to promote the democratic values of young people and their involvement in their environment, but is also a recognition of entities such as Altea and their commitment to new participatory models,” said Sandra Haro.

For her part, Maria A. Lavios, Councilor for Citizen Participation, Foreigners, Employment Promotion, OAC and European Projects of Altea, appreciated the opportunity to participate and to present her experience.

The meeting, which took place on Wednesday September 22 at 7:00 p.m., can be viewed on the YouTube channel of the consistory.
