engage2 podcast: César Silva on Participatory Budgeting in Local Government
César Silva is the co-founder of WireMaze, Portuguese company specialized in the digital transformation of local government. In this podcast, Amelia Loye and César discuss how Participatory Budgeting (PB) is transforming the relationship between local communities and public institutions.
Participatory budgeting provides an opportunity for community to engage in processes of deliberation upon the allocation of public funds. The lack of trust in political processes decreases when people get involved in their city’s PB process.
The use and development of EngageTech is increasing rapidly. Governments that want to effectively engage with their communities should keep up with the times. Join us on July 28 to connect and learn with people and organisations using technology to engage stakeholders and communities across Australia and New Zealand (ANZ).
