This week Naheed Nenshi, Mayor of the City of Calgary launched a Budget Simulator as part of the City’s 2015-2018 Action Plan. The Action Plan is an intensive 17 day consultation period inviting citizens of Calgary to express their priorities for the City over the next three years.

The Budget Simulator uses Delib’s Simulator platform, and is just one element of a really exciting wider campaign giving citizens every possible opportunity to have their voice heard. The Calgary team have even taken to the streets in the ‘Action bus’ scheduled to make an appearance at over 20 public engagement events.

The high profile launch was led by Mayor Naheed Nenchi and received incredibly positive social media coverage from members of the public and press, supporting this transparent and inclusive approach to budget consultation.

The Calgary Budget Simulator and Action Plan will be live until the 20th March 2014. This is an inspiring example of citizen engagement.
