Who are we?

We are individuals, grassroots associations, organisations, public facilities, city programmes and services, and Barcelona City Council, working collaboratively to dispel the rumours, stereotypes and discrimination that hinder living together in the city.

Five-hundred member organisations and individuals are part of the Anti-Rumour Network today.

What do we do?

We take action together and cooperate to eradicate rumours and stereotypes that can generate discriminatory and racist attitudes and can, therefore, hamper positive intercultural relations between people of different cultural backgrounds.

We strive to bring together all sorts of experiences by keeping in mind that each one of us can contribute reflections and new ideas for building a diverse and unified city. So, we are open to everybody's participation in the network.

How do we do it?

We work together with individuals, organisations and public facilities in the city in order to have an impact in key sectors: education and small business, among others.

We carry out awareness-raising actions on a local level and by means of a variety of anti-rumour materials, resources and activities.

We seek synergies with the media in order to ensure proper treatment of cultural diversity.

How do we organise?

We work in committees and groups formed voluntarily by Network members (grassroots associations, organisations, public facilities, city programmes and services, and Barcelona City Council):

  • Steering Committee (elected democratically by Network members)

Working groups

  • Training
  • Communication
  • Action in the neighbourhoods
