Proactive City 2020 has left us six projects where innovation and the joint action of city residents are working together to offer solutions that improve our quality of life. Solutions for cultivating food in urban environments, for technology to help to strengthen small shops and their digitisation or for elderly people to have a healthy diet with community support. Discover them on the videos we offer you below.


The “Municipal strategy on algorithms and data to ethically drive artificial intelligence” provides Barcelona with a legal framework to ensure that people’s digital rights are respected in the application of artificial intelligence (AI). Barcelona is thus joining cities such as Amsterdam, New York, Helsinki, Toronto and Seattle in the construction of a human rights-based AI model with a commitment to a democratic digital society.
