The first pilot is deployed in the Barcelona neighbourhood of La Verneda i La Pau, with more than 25 organizations involved that define and implement a comprehensive intervention in a coordinated manner, acting as referents and agents of change. They move collectively towards a shared vision, with reflective and iterative monitoring. In this way, they work as a decentralized organization with a shared strategy.
The integrated intervention promotes changes in the food environment, in Research and Innovation, evaluation and funding models, and in the strategies of the organizations. These changes are implemented in parallel with individual changes.
After this first pilot, the Alison Network envisions scaling up to other neighbourhoods in Barcelona, as well as cities in the Metropolitan Area.
