The Barcelona City Council, together with Xnet and the Citizen Group on Digital Policies (GCPD) launches a call to collect initiatives launched by Barcelona civil society in the defense of digital rights. The call is open until March 21, 2021.

This project will carry out a mapping to give visibility to everything that citizens are doing in the field of defense and promotion of digital rights. The information collected will be returned through an open web repository.

The process will end with a public presentation to make the initiatives known to the public and to create synergies between the various groups and active people involved. The total collection of initiatives will also be presented to the rest of the Cities for Digital Rights network in order to become a reference for other cities and establish collaborations.

¿How to participate?

The project is open to people, groups, entities or companies active in the field of digital rights. You only have to send up to a maximum of three initiatives already carried out in Barcelona or from Barcelona that help to understand or develop one or more of the following areas.
