This year, we have 70,000 euros to transform the ideas suggested by the residents into practical reality.
In participatory budgeting, the people of Oulu come up with ideas and vote to decide how the City of Oulu will use 70,000 euros to improve the well-being of the residents.

In the conception phase (January 30 and February 12, 2023) anyone was able to suggest an idea that would make Oulu more congenial or foster a sense of community.
After the search for ideas, all feasible ideas are developed into proposals for vote together with communities and experts working for the city.
In the spring, Oulu residents can vote on the best ideas to be implemented. After the vote, based on the result, the city will implement the ideas that receive the most votes if they fit into the budget of 70,000 euros.
Participatory budgeting is a mode of operation in which residents decide on the use of a certain amount of money. The aim of the participatory budgeting is to increase the opportunities for residents to influence and participate, and to utilize their knowledge and expertise in the development of the city.
