The Association Bilbao Metropoli-30 has been working on the development of the “Strategic Reflection 2035. A look into the future”, in collaboration with more than a hundred of its associated entities, in order to promote a long-term vision for our metropolis,
In 2022 we launched a new participatory phase called “2035 Etorkizunari begira Topaketak”, creating reflection groups for each of the key variables identified in the Strategic Reflection, led by one of the Bilbao Metropoli-30 partners and with the participation of an expert person in each area.
We organized a cycle of eight meetings, once a month, dedicating each of them to a specific theme. Those meetings aim to advance in each key variable and create a participatory debate in order to define actions that can contribute to achieving the goals set forth in it, with the knowledge and collaboration of the invited expert.
After an institutional opening session by the entity associated to Bilbao Metropoli-30, which leads the corresponding group and which will offer the contextual framework of the key variable, the invited expert in that field offers a presentation on the subject.
Then, Bilbao Metropoli-30 moderates a debate with its participating partners with the aim of defining actions within each variable that can contribute to achieving the objectives set forth therein, with the collaboration and knowledge of the speaker.
