Governance and citizen engagement
Metropolitan Governance

MetroSolutions International Congress

Convened by the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona (AMB), the international congress MetroSolutions will present and discuss possible solutions to the great current metropolitan threats and challenges that different metropolises are facing around the world. 

Solutions of Governance, legitimacy and good government

Anatomy of metropolises: definition, scope, governance and association, services provision, relationship with other levels of government and relationship with the rural environment.

Solutions of inclusion and equity

Implementation of metropolitan policies for economic, social and territorial inclusion and cohesion; strategies and actions to take into consideration citizens’ interests and needs (diversity, gender…) within metropolitan policies and services; and equality of citizens’ rights and obligations. 

Solutions of resilience and innovation

Public administration modernisation in relation to the digital and ecological transition; implementation and design of metropolitan strategic infrastructures; innovation to address the post-covid era; strategies to transform fast-growing metropolises within impoverished territories with scarce resources; and consolidating cities in territories in conflict situations. 

When? 17-18 October, 2022

Where? Online and on-site at Citilab, citizen lab for social and digital innovation, in Cornellà de Llobregat.
