More and more, cities have become the social, economic and innovations engines of the global community. They also play a critical role in promoting universal values. As a Barcelona-based organisation, Barcelona International Public Policy Hub (BIPP HUB) aims to contribute to the positive development of Barcelona as a city of social justice through all of its activities. For instance, BIPP HUB is one of the main supporters of the Barcelona International Policy Sector Action Plan (BCN Action Plan), whose objective is to convert Barcelona into a global centre of reference for innovation and activity related to international public policy.
In line with this vision, BIPP HUB has also created opportunities for Barcelonians to be engaged global citizens by offering courses and organising accessible events on important international themes to the public. The intention is to apply the BIPP HUB model in other cities worldwide, in order to facilitate the role of cities in actively supporting innovative work on the important global challenges.
