Participative Budget

In Participative Budget (Orçamento Participativo), the Municipality of Lisbon committed a budget of approximately 5 million Euros (per year) to public participation.

Projects were proposed by citizens, selected by the politicians then voted on by citizens (in 2012 230 projects were voted). Projects include a start-up centre and the refurbishment of one of the oldest central run down neighbourhoods.
