Dear Ashish,

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 
Cities initiative.

*Transformative Cities**

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.

I invite you to revise our website to get further insights about the
