Decidim Barcelona: technology to encourage participation

The digital participation platform is a digital infrastructure that provides city residents with access to Barcelona City Council’s various participation mechanisms, such as processes, bodies and citizens’ initiatives, and offers them the possibility of participating online in their own time, thus promoting better time management for those interested in taking part in city decisions.

The platform has been in operation since 2016 and is constantly being improved through the incorporation of new developments and functionalities.
One of the obstacles to city residents’ use of is the digital gap. For this reason, during participation processes, participation support points have been set up in every district, and this support is planned to be extended in the future.
