Empowering Participatory Budgeting in the Baltic Sea Region (EmPaci)
The EmPaci-project is a joint venture in the Baltic Sea Region to promote participatory budgeting in municipalities. Participatory budgeting is a process of democratic decision-making in which ordinary people take part in preparing and adopting a municipal or public budget.
The EmPaci project team includes Finnish partners, LAB University of Applied Sciences and Tampere University who work together with 15 other partners from the Baltic Sea Region. The Association of Finnish Municipalities, a forerunner in Finnish PB, is also part of the team and supports EmPaci.
