Are there other examples of participatory budgeting?
Yes, of course, this democratic tool was not invented in Zurich. It was first tried out in Porto Alegre in Brazil in 1989. A similar procedure has also become established in many German cities under the term "participatory budgeting". In the meantime, most participatory budgets take place online: for example, Reykjavik after the 2008 financial crisis, Barcelona or Helsinki. In Switzerland, the city of Lausanne has already tried it out.
