Barcelona Activa is Barcelona’s local economic development agency
As a local development agency, our vision is to make Barcelona a city of international reference for employment, enterprise, and living by social and environmental principles.
Our mission is to improve quality of life by promoting the economic competitiveness of the city and re-establishing an equilibrium between the districts of Barcelona. We seek to achieve this by fostering quality employment, encouraging entrepreneurship, and supporting a diverse and plural business fabric that is economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable.
In order to meet these challenges, as a key agent of the city’s economic ecosystem, we focus on three strategic objectives:
- Activating the economy at a neighbourhood level, creating new services and enhancing existing ones.
- Promoting Barcelona’s strategic business sectors, such as the creative industries and ICT, to encourage the creation of quality jobs.
- Integrating the Agenda 2030’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into our actions.
BCN Green Deal
We do all this within the framework of the Barcelona Green Deal economic agenda, the new municipal strategy for reviving the city’s economy by prioritising the retention and training of talent, facilitating economic activity and attracting an increased quantity and quality of investments.
