Not only big metropolises can develop a Smart City strategy and move towards a sustainable, inclusive, intelligent urban planning and management model. In that regard, since 2013, the Provincial Council of Barcelona has been developing actions oriented to foster and promote the smart cities model in the 311 municipalities of its territory, and making co-funding available for them to this end.
In this framework, Tordera, a town of 17,000 inhabitants located 50 km north of Barcelona, decided to develop its Smart City strategy in 2018.
