Democratisation of care work
Barcelona is a pioneering city in implementing feminist policies in one of the areas that creates the most discrimination and inequality: care work.
Tasked with a clear transformational purpose, Caring City aims to be a tool to help bring recognition to the social value of care work, and to ensure the right to care and be cared for in decent, quality conditions.

What do we want to do?
