Sustainable strategies for local climate change in the urban context
Limitation and lack of land – a situation Barcelona is experiencing due to its unique geography.
Amazing Barcelona takes it as a blessing and a gift.
The city has turned a former old industrial site into the well-known innovation district 22@. With a strong citizen participation and a triple helix approach of university, industry and government Barcelona has also become a role model for good urban governance and strategy driven city development. Aiming at technology companies and innovative start-ups 22@ became an experimental ecosystem and an attractive hotspot for young professionals and talents. This trend however has a negative effect on affordable housing and inclusion.
