BCDI featured in Global Atlas of Utopias Project


On July 4th, 2019, Transformative Cities released the 2019 edition of the Atlas of Utopias launches online. The atlas is a unique collection of community-led transformations of water, energy, food and housing systems, featuring 33 stories from 24 countries.

The cases show how public solutions based on principles of cooperation and solidarity rather than competition and private profit have been more successful in meeting people's basic needs – and perhaps just as importantly in creating a spirit of confidence and empowerment that strengthen communities for many other challenges.

Transformative Cities is a partnership of international civil society organiations and social movements. It explores how cities and collectives are ensuring access to basic rights, as traditional forms of democracy are failing, and states, multilateral institutions, and transnational corporations are unwilling or too slow to address the climate crisis.

BCDI is proud to be a co-sponsor of the Our Economy Conference at the CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies

The conference will advance understanding and debates around how to democratize the economy locally, nationally, and transnationally. See the conference schedule here, and download the program PDF here.

***Note: The conference is at capacity.*** For those who can’t attend, keep an eye out for the bilingual handbook that will be released later this spring, summarizing all of the sessions from the day!
