Let me forward you this invitation for three reasons:
- this is an online platform and forum for cities with a municipalist agenda, interested to drive the grassroots initiatives, feminisation of politics, doughnut economy, and commons and cooperative initiatives in the city. There are many shared values and shared social battles within the meet.coop ecosystem.
- It’s programme team, part of the City of Amsterdam is member of meet.coop
- they have contracted meet.coop to provide a scalable dedicated BBB server with streaming options. We hope that their contribution will drive some of the improvements that several meet.coop members have asked for.
Without further await… here’s the invitation, with kickoff this Friday at 13h CET, with Kate Raworth and others.
You are invited. To change the city.
In cities across the globe a movement is growing that is committed to building a just, social and sustainable society. In streets, neighborhoods and districts all over the world countless people are working for a world in which the well-being of all takes precedence over the profits of the few. It’s time for these movements to come together. This will happen during the Cities for Change Forum, from March 26 to early June 2021. We welcome you to join!
Cities for Change is an international digital platform where residents, neighborhood groups, social organizations, NGOs, civil servants, administrators, scientists and social entrepreneurs from all over Europe come together. To share, to inspire, to connect and to collaborate. The power of our movement grows when we work together locally and internationally. In this way we can develop a new agenda for change and make today’s alternatives, tomorrow’s normal.
