At the second debate session on ‘Doing Democracy Differently’ we will highlight alternative democratic practices such as participatory budgeting. At local levels we see new initiatives popping up everywhere which aim to change politics by organizing communities differently. Typical examples are participatory budgeting initiatives from Latin American cities: how have these experiences spread over the world? And are these viable alternatives for doing democracy? Three experts will share their experiences from Lima, Porto Alegre, Montevideo, and Deventer on how citizens can directly participate in defining their community budgets.
