Launch of the first network of cities to combat gender inequality
The network will share and promote innovative approaches to eliminate gender barriers.
The CHANGE network explicitly recognises cross-cutting inequalities based on race, religion, ethnic origin, disability, sexual and gender identity. To combat them, member cities will be working together to implement local initiatives which provide a response.
In Barcelona, the City Council is working to apply the gender perspective across the board. On one hand, in all strategies, plans and initiative implemented in the city, such as urban planning with a gender perspective and the creation of the LGBTI Centre, and on the other, in the management of the local administration, with a regulation on gender equality within Barcelona City Council.
