Decide how we work together
A participatory process is a sequence of participatory activities (e.g. first filling out a survey, then making proposals, discussing them in face-to-face or virtual meetings, and finally prioritizing them) with the aim of defining and making a decision on a specific topic.
Examples of participatory processes are: a process of electing committee members (where candidatures are first presented, then debated and finally a candidacy is chosen), participatory budgets (where proposals are made, valued economically and voted on with the money available), a strategic planning process, the collaborative drafting of a regulation or norm, the design of an urban space or the production of a public policy plan.

As People Powered grows, members decide how we work together.
Through a participatory policy-making process, we invited participatory democracy organizations and advocates around the world to decide on new organizational policies to advance our mission, values, and plans.
First, everyone was invited to share ideas for new policies. Then, our member organizations, boards, and staff turned the ideas into a shortlist of proposals, and voted to decide which policies we implement. A Governance Committee of member organizations and board members oversaw the process.
Proposals were considered eligible if they met the following criteria:
