Cities are pioneering society’s path towards progressive and sustainable systems. Project partners of the Cities as Places of Hope Project will gather in Barcelona to discuss how we can transform our food systems in cities for the good of the people and the planet.


In 2022 the Cities as Places of Hope project aims to bring together progressive and transformative trans-local city networks, connect them and facilitate their exchanges, ultimately contributing to a positive narrative for the future of Europe. This year the project will continue with an inspiring public event in each country with the title ‘Talking about a Green City’ bringing together the broader green family of activists, civil society, new urban actors and the general public. In Barcelona, the focus of the activities will be around sustainable food systems and food production.
