Participatory Budgeting

Participatory Budgeting

On March 15th I went down to Lucan-Palmerstown to observe the South Dublin participatory budgeting project.
I spoke to Independent Mayor Guss O’Connell, who has been spearheading this project for years, and who finally succeeded in getting 300k EUR set aside to be put into projects that local people initiate and decide upon under the tagline “300k: Have your Say”.
