Meetings with the mayor
“Meetings with the Mayor” are a regular meetings held between the Mayor and neighbourhood residents. They are held without any pre-established agenda. The Mayor attends them to listen, answer what she can, share reflections on the city and its priorities and improve everyday municipal work. They are unprecedented participation spaces.
The first of these took place in 2015, since when, some fifty meetings with residents have been held. They take place every two weeks in Barcelona’s various neighbourhoods (they had to be suspended last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic).
