Financing metropolitan transport: private workshop for City Managers

This is a full-day interactive activity with two main components: a workshop session in the morning, and a field visit in the afternoon, to facilities of the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona.

The workshop session will be facilitated by Alexander Heichlinger, Senior Expert and Consultant in city management, who will apply a problem-driven and solution-oriented methodology. All participants are encouraged to share their inspiring experiences, the difficulties of their routines, and their most pressing doubts, in a safe environment of trust among peers, which can foster the collective elaboration of innovative and creative solutions.
