The third LAB Metadecidim session will focus on laying the foundations for a participatory action research aimed to explore models of democratic governance (supported by Decidim) for different territorial metropolitan scales.
In the current socio-economic context in Barcelona (affected by processes of urban financiarization, uncontrolled tourism pressure, the hyper-technologization of life, emergence of new forms of production and calls for sustainability) autonomy and social self-organization appears as a key step to go beyond the smart city model and towards a just, democratic city. In this context, new city-levels like Superilles, appear as a space for potential experimentation with democratic forms of life and collective action.
