The Citizen Council for Sustainability is a consultative and participation city sector body acting in domains related to sustainability. It is the promoter of the Public Commitment for Sustainability, the road map of citizens, organizations and governments to advance together towards a more sustainable city.
It is regulated by internal procedures approved by the Full Council of the City of Barcelona on October 3, 2014, effective as of November 4, 2014. From the entry into force of this regulation, the hitherto City Council for Environment and Sustainability became the Citizen Council for Sustainability. The council aims to represent the different groups and sectors involved in achieving the goals of the Commitment and become the promoter of new strategies for engagement, co-responsibility and participation of citizens' organizations.
