Campo de Cebada

Campo de Cebada (Field of Barley) is an open community of active citizenship that emerged from a conflict situation: the rehabilitation of disused public spaces. It aims to generate the inclusion of more stakeholders in decision-making to create an open infrastructure to serve the public. It is a space for dialogue between the citizens and the city administration that facilitates comprehensive participation in urban planning. The process by which the neighbours recovered the site is an example of peaceful coexistence, transparency and open data. The residents themselves participate in decisions about what activities are implemented and what projects are initiated, whereby they share responsibility in the usage of the space. The project includes a digital platform where the different “fields” of action – cultural, social, artistic, and athletic – are compiled and documented.
