BARCELONA, a compact and complex mediterranean city. A more sustainable vision for the future

The document presented is primarily intended to build a prospective scenario for Barcelona in the XXI century, using an academic criterion which particularly includes urban ecology. It is an intentional model (as proposed and made by man) who also intends to set the tone and direction that should continue Barcelona´s progress towards sustainability.

 
The proposals outlined here are in some sense, a translation of a strategic form of proposal, the participation process launched in Barcelona is to set the Agenda 21 of the city.
 
This document contains outlined proposals for Barcelona and others that transcend municipal boundaries and the areas that comprise the metropolitan area of Barcelona (districts Maresme Barcelonès, Baix Llobregat, Baix Penedès, Alt Penedès and Vallès Occidental Vallès Oriental). Proposals for the Barcelona metropolitan area are also schematic in nature, and are intended to serve as a basis for discussion in future Strategic Plan of the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona and the Metropolitan Territorial Plan near Barcelona.
 
A more sustainable Barcelona excluding the metropolitan reality is impossible. Schemes that are seeking consistency of approach and territorial coherence are where the justification for inclusion lies.
 
The document is structured into four main sections that coincide with the axes structuring the model. Each shaft is filled with content for the formulation of policy proposals regarding the two separate aspects both urban and territorial.
 
Outlined proposals have a formulation in strategic terms, but do not develop, at least to the necessary extent, the economic, legal, organizational and educational instruments to be followed in case they are admitted. However, there is a section that lists some more general instruments that give meaning to the proposed feasibility.
 
Also included in an individual section are the composite indicators for monitoring the model.
