• Open North, a non-profit that creates websites to increase citizen participation in democracy, has built a tool called `citizen budget` to gather public budgeting priorities .
Here is Open North`s description of what it does at its site: what-is-open-north.
Open North is a Canadian non-profit that creates websites to increase citizen participation in democracy. We’re building online tools to lower the barrier to entry to active participation, using two main strategies:
1. Improve access to government information
In this way, we want to help citizens move from “information I have” to “information I understand” to “information I care about.” Our projects engage at various steps of this process.
2. Make participation easy, fun and meaningful
