The Acusticat congress is a biannual participation space for municipalities all around Catalonia. Besides reflection and proposed solutions, the event is also an occasion for exchanging experiences and putting forward initiatives within the framework of preventing noise pollution and the creation of quiet areas, as well as the promotion of management and control tools. The intention is also to drive collaboration between administrations with powers in this sphere.

The fifth edition of the congress was held in Manresa on 24 and 25 April, serving as the main event for Noise Free Week 2024. Barcelona City Council took part in the event, presenting some challenges and with a speech by the Department for Environmental Evaluation and Management about restaurant terraces in public streets.
