My name is Sol Trumbo, I work for the Transnational Institute (TNI) in
Amsterdam, Fiona has given me your contact.
I meant to write to you for a long time and I am happy to be finally
exploring a possible collaboration. I find the Global Tapestry of
Alternatives a very timely and relevant initiative, which shares many
goals with one of the projects I coordinate at TNI, the Transformative
The Transformative Cities <https://transformativecities.org> initiative
is launched by a group of regional and international organizations (in
alphabetical order): European network for community-led initiatives on
climate change and sustainability (Ecolise), Friends of the Earth
International (FoEI), Global network of continental networks committed
to the promotion of Social Solidarity Economy (RIPESS), Habitat
International Coalition (HIC), the Global Platform for the Right to the
City (GPR2C) and the Transnational Institute (TNI).
Transformative Cities is an opportunity for progressive local
governments, municipalist coalitions, social movements and civil society
organizations to popularize and share their experiencesof building
solutions to our planet’s intertwined political and ecological crises.
The initiative draws on the emerging wave of transformative practices
and responses taking place at municipal level worldwide, by launching a
unique platform and award process that will facilitate the wider
dissemination of the lessons and inspiration from such practices.
