Barcelona presents new edition of City to City FAD Award

Cities have to face on a daily basis a series of problems, conflicts, challenges and scenarios that require solutions and skill to adapt to them. It is in this context that the City to City Barcelona FAD Award was constituted in the year 2008. Its objective is to recognise experiences that occur, are undergone or are generated in cities in order to provide responses that will bring a transforming and positive effect to that city and its citizens.

The City to City Barcelona FAD Award is global in scope, because exemplary solutions to conflicts, scenarios or new challenges faced by cities do not depend on geographic location or on degree of development. All over the world we can find model responses to complex situations; geographic, climatic, religious aspects and other peculiarities are viewed as positive in the approach adopted by this award.

The award represents Barcelona’s recognition of urban experiences that have taken place in another city, and goes to the people behind them. The award, which has the support of Barcelona City Hall, is organised and granted by the FAD (Fostering Arts and Design) with the independence it has gained through its trajectory and legal nature.

Cities interested should present their candidacy until 28th february. More information:
