What is OmaStadi?
OmaStadi is the City of Helsinki’s way of conducting participatory budgeting, and the City has allocated 8.8 million euros to implementing ideas proposed by residents. Ideas are submitted and developed on this website. During the co-creation phase, ideas are turned into viable proposals together. In autumn 2021, the City’s residents will vote on the proposals and the City will implement those proposals that receive the most votes.
Participatory budgeting phases:
- Brainstorming: anyone may submit a proposal for improvements to the City of Helsinki.
- Co-creation: through collaboration, ideas are turned into proposals that meet the criteria, and the City’s experts estimate the costs of the proposals.
- Voting: all residents turning 12 years of age or older during the voting year may vote.
- Implementation: the City will implement the proposals with the most votes from all districts.
