Nearly 90 thousand active Varsovians have decided! 850 projects totalling more than PLN 62 million will be implemented next year. During an official gala held in the Copernicus Science Centre on Thursday, 12 July, the residents learned which were the winning ideas.


The capital city has been developing thanks to its active residents who stimulate and integrate their local communities. The results can be seen all over the city. New cycle paths, outdoor gym zones, playgrounds, and new green areas, have all been created thanks to their ideas. More than twelve thousand projects have been submitted so far, of which over three thousand are being or are going to be implemented, with a budget of over PLN 260 mln. “The five editions of the participatory budget have shown that Warsaw is precious to its residents, and that they are willing to participate in the shaping and reshaping of the city; they feel responsible for their city,” says Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz, Mayor of Warsaw.
