The very first phase of any Participatory Budgeting Cycles is Discover. You will be automatically placed into Discover when you create your PB cycle.
Discover introduces two key roles:
- Administrators: Administrators are responsible for defining the PB program, determining who is eligible to participate, and managing each of the phases. It is common for at least one administrator to be a teacher, with additional student leaders serving as co-facilitators.
- Participants: Participants can create, refine, and vote on proposals. Participants are typically students.
In Discover, PB administrators will:
- Establish a theme
- Define the budget
- Determine the schedule
- Invite students and other participants
