» Viladecans

Viladecans is one of the municipalities working to advance for the protection and promotion of human rights, starting with its 2003 accession to the “Xarxa de Pobles i Ciutats pels Drets Humans”, with a clear objective of strengthening of local democracy through the compliance with the European Charter for the Safeguarding of Human Rights in the City.

The municipal action and governance of the Viladecans Council is based on several pillars:

  • Public participation and community action
  • Cooperation, solidarity, and twinning
  • Promoting coexistence through mediation and promoting multiculturalism

One of the projects that has obtained good results is the “Viladecans Solidària”, a campaign promoted by organizations in the city and the Council in the years 2013 and 2014 that was aimed at collecting funds and products that are distributed to most deprived people in the city through the Solidarity Point.
