Barcelona has announced major plans to tackle the climate emergency and transform the city with a host of new measures designed to cut greenhouse gas emissions by half in just ten years. After city hall declared a climate emergency on 15 January 2020, a £480 million plan will be enacted. Over 100 different actions have been advocated, including the creation of low-emission zones to stop polluting traffic, introducing healthier meals in schools, increasing solar energy generation and creating many more parks. Such a package would see Barcelona become the first major Spanish city to fulfil its promise to enact new policies to fight climate change.
