Improving democracy through dialogue and participation 17-18th may 2018
The Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (SALAR) hosted an international conference in Stockholm, Sweden, focusing on Participatory Budgeting and other forms of public participation as routes to develop a democratic and socially sustainable society.
During two days in May 2018 around 200 experts, representatives from municipalities and civil society, from both Sweden and other countries gathered in Stockholm and learned more about participatory budgeting and participation in complex issues such as social inclusion and infrastructure development. Experiences were shared and we had interesting discussions about participatory processes and democracy.
Presentations and videos from the conference are published on this website.
