Promoting Health in the neighborhood of La Sagrada Familia
January 31th. 2018
The Sagrada Familia Community Development Plan (known in Catalan as PDC) "is a network of people; neighbors, entities, services and shopkeepers associations that work together to transform and improve the quality of life in the neighborhood in different aspects: health, cultural diversity and social fabric", among others. It started in 2007 after getting a "shared radiography of the reality of the territory and knowing what was necessary to enhance, improve and change, how it could be done and who we have to do it".
One of the programs of the Sagrada Familia PDC is the program of activities organized in the neighborhood from different services and associations of the territory. The objective is "to offer a unified program of activities, with different proposals, that respond to the concerns and interests of the residents of the neighborhood".
