‘Fearless’ means daring to get our hands dirty rather than watch from the sidelines.
Fearless Cities is an informal global movement of activists, organizations, councilors and mayors that are working to radicalize democracy, feminize politics and drive the transition to an economy that cares for people and our environment.
The first Fearless Cities event was organized by Barcelona En Comú in 2017, and was attended by over 700 people representing over 100 municipalist organizations from every continent. The book documenting the first Fearless city Summit has been translated into five languages.
Since then, decentralized, regional Fearless Cities events have been organized in Brussels, Valparaiso, New York City, Warsaw, Belgrade and Naples by local municipalist platforms.
2021 sees a new international Fearless Cities event, in a context of a global health, economic and ecological crisis that demands braver, more innovative responses than ever before.
