The project is aimed at the coherence of public policies and economic activity related to the transport and mobility of people and goods, to the city-hub that Barcelona has become within the global market. More broadly, it addresses policy coherence in terms of climate and social justice on a global scale. Thus, based on the change in the mobility and infrastructure model proposed in the City’s Climate Emergency Declaration, different economic policies and interests will be addressed and identified from an ecofeminist global justice approach.
