Citizen participation platform decidim.barcelona
At Barcelona Science, we believe that citizen participation should be at the heart of the definition of scientific and university policies promoted by the city. For this reason, the decidim.barcelona platform is a useful tool for us to consult with the public on different actions and measures in science policy.
What is the decidim.barcelona platform?
decidim.barcelona is Barcelona City Council's digital participation platform for building a more democratic city. It is a reference space for building an open, transparent, collaborative city in which the people who live there play a leading role.
Participatory process for the Barcelona Science Plan 2020-2023
In 2021, the City Council opened up the review and expansion of the Barcelona Science Plan 2020-2023 to the public through a participatory process on the decidim.barcelona platform to introduce measures aimed at post-pandemic recovery.
The aim of the participatory process was to adapt the Plan to the new context generated by Covid-19. Following the process, the Plan incorporated measures to reinforce science as an engine for the city's economic recovery, to address gender equality in the scientific field and to promote new spaces for scientific dissemination and culture.
The evolution of the Re-launch the Barcelona Science Plan 2020-2023 process can be consulted on the platform's website.
