Barcelona City Council
A healthier food system for all
Empowering younger generations to lead the change
The starting point
In 2020 Barcelona was chosen as the World Sustainable Food Capital for year 2021. The nomination stems from the Milan Urban Food Policy Pact signed in 2019 with the objective of warning people about the current food emergency and showcase the strategic role of cities in the development of sustainable food systems, that provide access to healthy food and act against malnutrition and food waste, while creating better local economic opportunities.
We were asked to translate the Capital objectives into a digital campaign to bring their message to as many people as possible.

The main goal of the project was to raise awareness and promote knowledge about sustainable food systems to encourage citizens to take action and be part of a much-needed change.
We wanted to rely on the younger generations to lead the movement that would create a more just and sustainable society as they have long demonstrated a better adaptability to change as well as a strong will to make an impact towards a more sustainable future.
Our team created a series of challenges and dynamics to be implemented in social media that would not only raise awareness within the population but also provide knowledge, encourage user generated content and interaction.
All in all, we delivered a digital citizen engagement campaign and a digital influencer awareness campaign to be implemented by the Barcelona City Council communications department during 2021.
We started by defining targets as well as relevant content universes and digital communication channels for each of them. More than 25 creative ideas for social media challenges were delivered to reach every target and generate an organic flow of content creation and interaction. A team of digital ambassadors associated with the main topics of the campaign was defined to ensure a wide reach.
