Connecting Barcelona

Description / Objectives

Neighbourhood digital-inclusion pilot project.

‘Connectem Barcelona’ is a pilot project to provide high-quality internet access to 400 vulnerable households in the neighbourhood of Trinitat Nova (Nou Barris) as well as evaluate the impact that being connected to internet with laptops has, and whether this improves when it is accompanied by skill-acquisition and training. The conclusions that are drawn will make it possible to define and quantify digital policies aimed at eliminating the digital gap throughout the city.

The project is a pioneering initiative aimed at combating this new source of social inequality, digitalisation, which the Covid-19 pandemic has exacerbated.

‘Connectem Barcelona’ is part of the city's plans for a fair digital transition, which aim to close the digital gap completely. It has been made possible by the collaboration of 30 organisations, including associations and companies, which have become involved in the project.
