What is RuutiBudjetti?
Ruutibudjetti is the annual model for participatory budgeting in Helsinki’s youth services. In RuutiBudjetti, ideas are gathered and refined locally and in multiple stages so that as many young people as possible have the chance to participate. This year, RuutiBudjetti will be implemented for the 8th time. RuutiBudjetti involves over 10,000 young people every year.
Every other year, young people also have the opportunity to get involved in the City of Helsinki’s participatory budgeting system, OmaStadi, in addition to RuutiBudjetti.
