Barcelona 2050. Urgent challenges for a sustainable future
Barcelona Global has presented, this Thursday 17th of September, the documentary 'Barcelona 2050. Urgent challenges for a sustainable future' in Bosque Multicines, from Grupo Balañá. The film is supported by Aigües de Barcelona and the Consorci de la Zona Franca, directed by Joan Úbeda and produced by The Mediapro Studio.
The documentary brings together the voices of some thirty professionals and key actors in Greater Barcelona, responsible for current urban development projects, experts in technology and science, Smart Cities, energy, culture and entrepreneurship, as well as the voices of leading international experts in the field. The film sets out the major debates and challenges of the metropolitan city and points out the opportunities it has if we activate large metropolitan projects with ambition.
The documentary will be premiered on TV3 on Tuesday 22 September at 23:00. With this broadcast, Barcelona Global is launching a campaign to debate the need to act and activate the major projects pending in the city of Barcelona, with the aim of continuing to generate specific proposals that have the complicity of the city's main public and private actors.
Barcelona 2050. Urgent challenges for a sustainable future' is a summary of eighteen months' work and more than fifty hours of recorded interviews and resources, an initiative that points out the path that Barcelona should follow to accelerate its transformation, responding to the mistaken idea that Barcelona is a city that is already complete.
This Thursday's presentation was attended by members of Barcelona Global, as well as experts in urban planning and related professionals. Furthermore, after the screening, there was a discussion with experts such as Carmina Ganyet (Inmobiliaria Colonial), Xavier Trias (Mayor of Barcelona 2011-2015), Joan Clos (Mayor of Barcelona (1997-2005) and Executive Director of UN-Habitat (2010-2018)), Pere Navarro (Consorci de la Zona Franca), Isabel Vidal (Grup Focus), Clara Navarro (Ship2B) and Narcís Berberana (Agbar).
