About Mobile Week Barcelona

Mobile Week Barcelona is an open space of dialogue around the impact of digital technology in the society, that connects the whole city through arts, science, and technology. A unique and integrative initiative to lead technological change from the city as a whole, tackling the great challenges and opportunities posed by technologies in terms of culture, quality of life, privacy, ethics, sustainability or security.

Our easy relationship with technology

Mobile Week Barcelona’s 3rd edition opens a space of dialogue for the citizens to think over the impact of technology on our society.

This year’s topic, ‘Our easy relationship with technology’, addresses the reflection on the society’s digital transformation from the most intimate spheres of the human being, as if it were a personal relationship. Starting from the daily negotiations that we engage with technology in almost all areas of our daily lives, the possible repercussions of these agreements and disagreements to constitute the basis of a future common pact are raised.
