New Weblinks to Particpatory Budgeting in Germany
We heard through Matthias Trenel of Humboldt University Berlin about an interesting e-democracy project going on in Berlin. Zebralog is currently doing the online segment (information and dialogue) of a participatory budgeting project in the Berlin borough of Lichtenberg which also has many face-to-face events. The project was inspired by the Porto Allegre model. For those of you who speak German, or know how to use google's translator and can interpret the results, here are two links: the project website at www.buergerhaushalt-lichtenberg.de; and Zebralog blog at www.zebralog.de/de/000125.html.
