The city of Brussels provides you the opportunity to be involved in the participatory budget 2018 and to work on concrete projects to promote and improve our city.
Participatory budgets are more and more popular in many European cities. The goal of such an initiative is get citizens involved in collective projects and to make them active stakeholders with full transparence. This year, the city of Brussels decided to allocate 200 000€ for participatory budgets. The projects will focus on social cohesion and well-being. Creativity is a key quality that the city is looking for.
The initiative is open to every resident, organisation or private stakeholder based in Brussels. Every person or entity is allowed to submit only one project. As a Brussels resident, you also can be part of the process by working and voting for projects, without applying for any grant.
