Social pedagogy meets local democracy: Examining the possibilities and limits of participatory budgeting
Languages of publication
W artykule podjęto zagadnienie roli pedagogiki społecznej w rozwoju dyskusji na temat uczenia się demokracji poprzez partycypację. Wymiana myśli ostatnich lat na temat poprawy relacji pomiędzy obywatelami i samorządem lokalnym jest istotna z punktu widzenia pedagogiki społecznej, ponieważ uznaje wiedzę lokalną i stara się rozwijać nowe kompetencje i dyspozycje polityczne oraz demokratyczne mieszkańców. Jedna z takich innowacji – budżetowanie partycypacyjne – została wręcz nazwana „szkołą obywatelstwa”, w której ludzie uczą się demokracji i poprzez aktywne uczestnictwo w procesach demokratycznych i zdobywają obywatelską i polityczną wiedzę, umiejętności, postawy, wartości i praktyki, których rzadko uczą się w formalnych instytucjach oświaty.
This article argues that social pedagogy can make a contribution to discussions on learning democracy through participation. The latest discussions on improving the relationship between citizens and local government are relevant to social pedagogy, as they recognize local knowledge, and attempt to develop new political and democratic competences and dispositions among inhabitants. One of these innovations – participatory budgeting – has been dubbed a ‘school of citizenship’ in which people learn democracy through active participation in democratic processes and acquire civic and political knowledge, skills, attitudes, values and practices that are seldom learned in formal educational institutions.
