Participatory Budgeting

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!

Somerset Dialogues

Somerset Dialogues is a platform for youths to explore their interests, deepen their knowledge and collaborate with other passionate youths. The aim is to foster belonging and ownership in a vibrant Somerset Belt.


Somerfest is a festival that celebrates the aspirations of our youths in shaping and developing the Somerset Belt into a vibrant youth-owned precinct. The festival features youths from the second edition of Realise Your Somerset Project who will be bringing their ideas to life within the Somerset Belt precinct including at Somerset Youth Park and *SCAPE. The festival is also held in conjunction with Sandbox Somerset, a partnership between the Somerset Belt and Invade that celebrates the milestones of 100 young entrepreneurs. Sandbox Somerset aims to be the platform to enable and present these inspiring founders as the next generation of industry leaders, allowing them to share their stories and innovations through activations such as network sharing, panel programmes, and panel and mentorship opportunities.
