About us

This website – Buergerhaushalt.org – is Germany’s online portal for anyone interested in participatory budgeting and related issues.

The site enables anyone interested to obtain basic information on participatory budgeting (PB), or find out more about current PB projects in the German-speaking countries and worldwide. Users can also obtain practical tips and materials for implementing PB, and profit from the lessons learned by other expert PB practitioners.

The English version of the website contains a selection of texts from the German version. It is designed to provide all interested parties outside the German-speaking countries with an overview of the current debates, trends, challenges and development status of PB in Germany.

You can also post your own inputs on the site, and use it as a platform for virtual sharing and exchange with other active users.

If you have a suggestion to make, please use the feedback forum, or send us an e-mail.

We look forward to hearing from you!
