What is Agròpolis and where has it come from?
Agròpolis is a participatory, public, community space led by social organisations and the public administration, launched by the Commissioner for Social Economy, Local Development and Food Policy, with a view to encouraging an agroecological transition in Barcelona.
In this space, various organisations and people linked to sustainable food and agroecology meet periodically, build alliances and give feedback on municipal food policies, offering their opinions and proposals.
Since its creation in March 2019, various meetings have taken place with a view to deciding how the space should work and making progress towards defining potential action to take relating to the right to healthy food; eco-friendly, short-circuit production and distribution; urban agriculture; school canteens and agroecological public procurement; the climate emergency, etc.
