The overall objectives of this deliberative space are:

1.-  to better understand the challenges concerning the river Llobregat

In order to achieve this goal, we propose:

  • Compiling reference information on the river basin including environmental, economic, social, urban and technical information providing a comprehensive overview of the basin.
  • Centralising and organising the information in an accessible register available to all (combining both physical and online material).
  • Promoting the creation of a map of anthropic pressures on the basin and a cartography indicating related risks.
  • Encouraging trainings on the current situation and future challenges concerning the river basin, tergeting all citizens, as well aspecific social and political actors.
  • Promoting the creation of a study and research network regarding the challenges of the river basin.
  • Promoting the creation of an exchange network of good practices in the fields of education, culture, management and preservation.

2.- To reduce anthropic pressure and pollution

In order to achieve this goal, we propose:

  • Acting as a watchdog on environmental regulations’ implementation and at the same time promoting an organic policy framework aiming at the ecological improvement of the basin.
  • Urging the competent authorities to seek consensus and the active participation of this roundtable when developing management plans of interest for the River Llobregat.
  • Closely monitoring the measures conducted by the competent authorities and their effectiveness towards reducing the impacts on the river.
  • Promoting the restoration and renaturalisation of the river, lakes and wetlands and their surroundings.

3.- To promote the management of the basin and the river as a common good

In order to achieve this goal, we propose:

  • Promoting the River Llobregat roundtable as a co-management body, generating a legitimate space of collaboration and dialogue between public authoritiesand other actors.
  • Encouraging the active participation and co-responsibility of citizens, to be engaged in the whole management procedure (diagnosis, solutions design and follow-up).
  • Supporting the principle of demand management taking into account the values linked to usage (water for life, water for purposes of general interest and water for economic activities).
  • Fostering reflection on the implications of the definition of the river as a common good.
  • Advocating for an ecofeminist approach that focuses on life and respects the life cycles and the ecological limits of our planet, as a way to fight for social and ecological justice.

4.- To bring together the existent social network in the Llobregat basin

In order to achieve this goal, we propose: 

  • Boosting the bond between the people and the river.
  • Joining efforts from the different agents currently working for the restoration of the river and the fluvial space.
  • Promoting the network to include the different social, political and economic actors of the basin.
  • Organising and supporting social and environmental claims and initiatives, working together with other social and environmental movements, including those active in other places related to the basin.
  • Promoting actions aiming at boosting the visibility of thework and milestones achieved by the different actors engaged.
