Ada Colau
Mayor of Barcelona

“Putting life and care at the center, giving a voice to the cities to ensure that decisions are made for peace, human rights, the fight against inequalities. This must permeate both the transformation and the future of the UN. The local world is ready to spread the voice of communities.
I am convinced that the world of today is full of great challenges. We need the UN more than ever, we need it to be the common project of human rights defenders. What the UN needs to understand is that it has the cities as its main allies, in order to ensure a better future for the next generations.”.
