What is Agròpolis?
A public-community space, launched by Barcelona City Council,
... for dialogue, work and action,
... between civil society, the economic fabric, universities and the municipal public authority,
... which share the goal of collaborating to transform Barcelona’s food system through the values of food sovereignty and agroecology.
Lines of work
It was the decision of the Agròpolis plenary to link its lines of work with the challenges described in the Barcelona 2030 Sustainable Food Strategy.
From the first nine challenges detected, we selected 5 to develop from Agròpolis. They are as follows:
- Increase the production and sale of agro-ecological and local foods and their distribution in short circuits
- Protect and recover urban and peri-urban productive spaces
- Promote and defend universal access to healthy and sustainable diets for all
- Promote food cultural change
- Balance power within the food chain and foster fair relations
