Declaration of Barcelona for Digital Social Inclusion

Description / Objectives

City Council and private sector commitment to social digital inclusion.

A collaboration agreement between Barcelona City Council and the Telefónica Foundation, the Vodafone Foundation, the Orange Foundation, Cisco Systems and Lenovo has led all these organisations to work together to bridge the digital gap. In particular, their work offers social return within the framework of programmes aimed at reducing the digital divide and offering skills acquisition for groups who have greater difficulty fully accessing new technologies. Priority has been given to neighbourhoods and portions of the population that the Government has identified as being more vulnerable.

Antenes Cibernàrium also fight to bridge the digital gap, turning some libraries across the city into IT literacy training centres. In the year 2018, 10 districts were reached through 14 programmes.
