Coexistence in summer

Together we all take care of Barcelona

City residents must be involved if public space is to properly used and Barcelona co-responsibly enjoyed and experienced.

We need to look after and love Barcelona between us all as well as contribute to a city model based on care of public space, responsible waste management and respect for other people.

Barcelona’s neighbourhoods festoon themselves for their annual festivals, with local people devoting a lot of their time and art to dressing up the streets. Respecting these festive decorations is looking after Barcelona!

Using litter bins properly

Use litter bins properly, and remember:

  • You can’t dump bags of rubbish in them.
  • You can’t throw cigarette ends that are still lit in them.

Keeping Barcelona clean depends on you too. Use litter bins properly!

Respecting pedestrians as you play

You can play, walk, sit and chat, and do many other things in the city’s streets and squares but do it respectfully. If you play in the street, show respect for other people!

Watering down dog pee

Summer campaign poster - Cuidem Barcelona

Pet pee is corrosive, damaging urban furniture and any surface it touches. That’s why urinating on building façades or urban furniture in parks and children’s recreation areas is banned. Should it happen, you should wash the surface with water.

Enjoy fireworks responsibly
