About The working sessions

Barcelona will celebrate working sessions to relaunch its economy after a year of pandemic: ‘Barcelona reAct’. For 4 days, experts and agents from all sectors will exchange proposals and analyze up to 10 major levers to drive this recovery. Experiences from other cities will also be shared, with the aim of weaving a network of resilient metropolises and recognition will be made of the solidarity initiatives that emerged from citizens during the pandemic.
