Òdena is located in the province of Barcelona, with a population of 3,600 people. The municipality has a great extension and coexists industrial and rural realities.
In the periphery of the nucleus of Òdena is the neighborhood of 'Santa Olga', a community formed by approximately 30 houses, on which it wishes to establish a strategy of urban renewal and improvement of coexistence. The general objectives are to consolidate the neighborhood as a decent living space for its citizens by regenerating urbanism and creating some public facilities for the entire municipality, as well as preventing those aspects that can generate situations of social conflict in both public and private.
In addition, as part of the strategy, we consider it important to connect the neighborhood with the main social facilities of Òdena (library, social center, school). In this way generate a flow of people that move from one side to another, favoring citizen contact, the sharing of public space and the creation of new social synergies. In this sense we propose actions such as: improving the internal roads that connect neighborhoods and nucleus, as well as strengthening the main street as a large urban distributor, especially at the pedestrian level.
Òdena is looking for municipalities throughout Europe, with experience in urban regeneration and improvement of coexistence. Òdena is not ready to be a leading partner, but is very motivated to become a very good partner
