 Participatory Budget for Students and PhD Students

​Are you a student or doctoral student at SGH - Warsaw School of Economics? Are you interested in the notions of environmental protection? You have an idea on how to positively affect the state of our planet through activities at the School? You have an idea on how to make your studying environment more green and ecological?

Submit your project for the second edition of the Student and PhD Student Participatory Budget, with the theme "ECOLOGICAL INNOVATIONS"!

What is the participatory budget?
The participatory budget is a co-management (participatory management) mechanism based on the inclusion of a wide circle of stakeholders into the decision-making on the allocation of a specific part of the budget in an institution or organisation.
In the case of the Student and PhD Student Participatory Budget at the Warsaw School of Economics, the budget for 2021 amounts to PLN 25,000. The students and PhD students are able to submit proposals on the expenditure of this amount. The concepts for implementation are chosen by means of a general vote. The maximum value of a single project submitted can equal the entire amount to be distributed, i.e. up to PLN 25,000.

The Participatory Budget’s theme is “Ecological Innovations”. Students and PhD students can submit projects aimed at improving the conditions of study and comprehensive development of students and doctoral students at the School, which also fit into the theme – they take into account the context of environmental protection and pro-ecological activities. These can especially include projects intended at:
a) improving the School’s infrastructure used by students and PhD students;
b) promoting health and growth of ecological awareness among the academic community members;
c) improving the study comfort.

It is possible to put forward permanent initiatives (e.g. infrastructural) and one-time initiatives (e.g. events, campaigns among the academic community, organisational solutions), except for initiatives organised directly by the School’s Student Organisations (SSOs).

The Participatory Budget does not cover the following:
•    granting additional cash benefits;
•    funding of projects organised directly by the School’s Student Organisations;
•    tasks contrary to the School’s mission
•    projects that entail obtaining financial benefits by the applicants.
