ActionTrack as a part of participatory budget data collection
Tuija Ronkainen / 21.03.2018
The City of Helsinki youth services performs participatory budget planning for young people called RuutiBudjetti as a part of the city’s youth work. Its purpose is to include young people in making decisions about the activities and services in their residential area. Ideas are collected from young people in various phases of the process so that as many young people as possible can participate in developing recreational and youth work services as well as the community in general. This year we used ActionTrack, a mobile app that enables the building of custom activities for users, for the first time to collect data for the participatory budget of the Vuosaari area.
