Barcelona could be a ‘Wonder City’

Posted on 29 October 2013 in Barcelona, always!

Barcelona has been chosen as one of the 28 finalists to become one of the “7 Wonder Cities” of the world, an initiative created by the swiss foundation, New 7 Wonders.

Bernard Weber, the founder of the organisation, declared that the choice reflected the diversity of urban society at a time when “more than half of the world’s population lives in cities“.

Barcelona – Wonder City

This distinction aims to recognise the cities that best represent the milestones and aspirations of global urban civilisation, as well as fomenting debate on how these population nuclei should respond to present and future challenges.

The list of the “7 Wonder Cities” will be revealed on 7 December 2014, after three knock-out stages, though you can already vote for your favourite cities on the foundation’s website and make Barcelona a Wonder City!
