21 September / This year’s ideas for Tartu’s participative budget can be viewed at the Kaarsild Bridge exhibition, where each of the 22 proposals will be on display, with residents of Tartu being able to choose the ones they like best via the popular vote taking place from 5–11 October 2023.

In addition to the Kaarsild exhibition, the ideas can be viewed online (www.tartu.ee/en/participative-budgeting) and, starting at the beginning of October, also in the Town Hall Information Centre.

Those interested are welcome to visit the Barge Hall (Ujula 98) on 3 September at 17.00, where the authors will introduce their respective ideas and answer questions about how their idea in particular will help make Tartu a better place. The event will also be broadcast live, and can be followed via the Tartu homepage and the City of Tartu’s Facebook page.

You can vote electronically from 5–11 October, either via the local government information system Volis or by visiting the Town Hall Information Centre. During participative budget voting, each resident of Tartu can vote for up to three ideas. The two ideas receiving the most votes will be implemented next year.

Voting is open to registered residents of the City of Tartu starting from the age of 14, and to all young people aged between 14 and 26 who are studying at a general education school, vocational educational institution, institution of professional higher education, or university, in Tartu.
