The Transformative Cities initiative is not a competition, but an exercise of coopetition, popularising progressive initiatives and encouraging cooperation and solidarity. We will now start a process of reflection, evaluation and knowledge-exchange between the initiatives featured in the Atlas of Utopias, and continue to find ways to promote the communities building the change we want to see in the world.
