Democracy in Action: Decide how school money is spent through participatory budgeting

for High School students

What happens when students are given real money to directly impact their campus? This summer, learn by doing, as you develop your own campus initiatives, deliver a community presentation, design a school wide voting system, and ultimately be responsible for funding and following through on the winning projects. 

Through hands on work, collaborative and engaging team activities, and personal leadership growth, you will refine your critical thinking, research, and change making skills. Put into practice the theory of democracy and citizen-student power through real money and enhance your campus for years to come!

Cost: 400 euros

Minimum enrollment: 5 students. Maximum enrollment: 15 students.
