On Saturday, January 21, 2012, The Innovation Games Company and the City of San José , CA, will host the second annual Budget Games event at City Hall in San José, CA . The specially-designed version of the Innovation Game Buy a Feature was first used in 2011 to help the Mayor’s office get actionable feedback from community leaders. Unlike other methods (such as rank-choice voting or surveys), Budget Games encourages collaboration and negotiation and provides insight into the how and why behind decisions.
The 2012 San José Budget Games will be part of the City of San José Neighborhood Associations/Youth Commission 2012-2013 Budget Priority Setting Session. More than 100 community leaders will participate, along with officials from City government and agencies and more than 30 Innovation Games Trained Facilitators and observers.
Residents of the City of San José who are interested in participating can register here.
