Barcelona is a city committed for working on a technology that is accessible to everyone and focused on increasing the wellbeing of all people.
Barcelona is an open, mixed, cosmopolitan city, a cultural crossroads that attracts visitors, talent, investment, technological and scientific innovation and pioneering cultural ideas.
Barcelona's mobile capital status and events such as the Mobile World Congress are a good opportunity for encouraging the private sector to study formulas that ensure a social and environmental return on its activities and promote new ways of producing and consuming.
Today's world shows the need to promote access to ICTs and boost society's knowledge of them. As the world's mobile capital, we want this technology to reach all the residents of Barcelona's 73 neighbourhoods. Technology that provides access to knowledge, technology that fosters citizen participation and involvement, and helps build a 2.0 democracy, technology that boosts the personal and professional potential of every man and woman in Barcelona. Because a smart city is a city where technology is at the service of public wellbeing.
