Thanks Annie. I was going to share link to DemSoc digital PB case studies, as Fife trialled YourPriorities as one of the tools to support Oor Cowdenbeath, but link from PB Scotland to actual case studies on DemSoc website is broken. Probably because you have updated your website since!

Robert Bjarnason - Citizens Foundation

In Iceland the PB processes have relied on blended approaches where we have the online platform but there are also, pre covid, town hall meetings where people can propose ideas by raising their hand and speaking the idea
Robert Bjarnason - Citizens Foundation

but the smartphone revolution has really helped close the divide where people of all ages and backgrounds can participate on their phones
Annie- Democratic Society

Coryn Barclay @FifeCouncil
55:07

In the voting example, do you set the number of projects that can be voted on? What about being able to assign preference to projects, i.e. 1st choice, 2nd choice, 3rd choice, and weight votes accordingly?
Louise O'Kane

Question: How much support from yourselves is required to set up a PB exercise? And can you give an indication of the type of costs it would require?
Paul Nelis SCDC

Verify using the census - interesting
Annie- Democratic Society

A lot of practitioners talk about the process of uploading ideas or developing the tool exhausting!
Louise O'Kane

Coryn Barclay @FifeCouncil
01:19:34

Coryn Barclay @FifeCouncil

Is it possible for multiple PB processes to run at the same time, as is possible with collaborative legislation? At the moment, it defaults to display the most recent PB process, which makes it difficult to view the outcomes of previous PB processes, or run processes in parallel in different areas
Coryn Barclay @FifeCouncil
02:02:51
Is there scope for the timeline not to be set at the city level, but at the district level?
Coryn Barclay @FifeCouncil
02:07:34
How is it possible to track milestones, if only one PB process can be operational at any time?
Lora Botev - CitizenLab
02:10:13
Same for citizenlab - we have different admin/project manager rights :)
