STEP 3: The event is accomplished by explaining the market rules and procedure. Citizens or NGOs present their ideas at their own booth in the market


STEP 4: City or city council members walk around as if shopping, reviewing ideas and talking to vendors


STEP 5: When there is agreement between the council member and the vendor, they sign an agreement that they will jointly prepare a proposal or plan


STEP 6: After the event, council members are given 1 to 3 weeks to turn their ideas into a concrete proposal. They then submit it to the vote of the other members at the council's budget negotiations.
