Decidim Barcelona

Description / Objectives

The digital and democratic platform for citizen participation.

The digital participation and democratic platform Decidim.Barcelona gives citizens a voice so that they may decide on the future of their surroundings. It is a digital space forming part of a participatory process in which to debate, respond and gather proposals. The tool is put together using open-source software and open code, so that it can be reused and improved upon.


How do I take part in a city process that I'm interested in?

  • Consult the open participatory processes.
  • Take part in debates (make new proposals, comment on existing proposals, give arguments in favour or against, support or share through social media).
  • Track proposals (those begun on the platform and those generated at face-to-face meetings, consult all debates, follow comments and final documents).

Some examples of citizen proposals:
