Participatory Budgeting, or PB for short, gives you real say over real money. It directly involves you as you get to decide how to spend a defined public budget. Through discussing and voting on spending priorities, you can monitor the whole process from start to end and see the ideas come to life!
Check out past campaigns here!

Bring your classroom ideas to life here at the Somerset Belt. If your school is keen to explore a partnership with us, drop us a direct message on our Instagram: @somersetbeltsg
Realise Your Somerset
